LiFe' s Not All a Bed Of Roses!


''When loneliness becomes your forbidden partner,
and Trouble knocks and shoots up at the door,
of a heart about to crush and wither,
with sorrows built up over and more.

When everything you do turns into shambles,
with the ones you trust snubbing at face,
When you feel being snuffed out like a candle,
In the milieu of life's long pathways.

Remember, my friend.
Life's not all a bed of Roses,
Life's not All a bed of roses.
So strive to look upon those lurking thorns,
with confidence at heart and courage to share,
Looking forward to attaining its highest goals.

The climb may not be easy, but will surely pay.
Then in the end when you reach that summit,
And success and glory to ever lay,
then in your path which with happiness be lit.

So do not despise your luck, or curse your fate.
thinking perhaps, ' It's been too late! ',
But never so late, if you get up and run.
For the day 's still crisp and the night 's still Young!

    A very inspiring write, letting in the comforting breeze of hope to pat our smouldering souls!

    So do not despise your luck, or curse your fate.
    thinking perhaps, ' It's been too late! ',
    But never so late, if you get up and run.
    For the day 's still crisp and the night 's still Young!

    A beautiful conclusion! (Report) Reply

    Life teaches more to study
    Then everything you do turns into shambles,
    with the ones you trust snubbing at face,
    When you feel being snuffed out like a candle,
    In the milieu of life's long pathways. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
