Grief


Through my sadness and my grief
To my understanding and my own belief
A cheat will always recognize another cheat
And it takes a thief to catch another thief.

Speaking to myself or shouting to a choir
From my own personal knowledge and my own desire
A perjurer will always remain a perjurer
And an honest man cannot trust a gossip or a liar.

Knowing myself and my soul from deep within
As I walk in the world of corrupted women and men
A tempter they will always be a tempter
So I stray myself away from their evil and sin.

A person will know from what they seduce
Some people thrive by using an excuse
They live by a lie as they will die with a lie
They dish out food along with their own abuse.

From my sadness and from my woe
To the total strangers and people that I know
Being dishonest and you will live dishonest
You will always reap what you plant and sow.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
