Thats Just the Way Life Is

5/10/2007 | 573 views | Category: Black Poems | Tags: Life Poem,

Life can be so confusing-
it could make you think that you are always a stranger-
that everyone around you could be a misuser
it could cause you not to trust anyone
and view everyone as an abuser
when you begin to contemplate
the cause of this effect
your mind begins to disintegrate
and within is created thoughts of death
but when the thoughts are pondered within
why would people choose to die rather than live-
it is a question, for which most people really have no answer,
except sometimes, and most often, that is just the way life is.
