Mourn


My wife she cheated so we divorced
Sadly infidelity she had endorsed
Her leaving our house I highly enforced
My pain and suffering was the final course

I had tried my best to turn the other cheek
But when I did, I became one of the meek
I was used and hurt while peace I did seek
In the end I became cold, bitter and bleak

A woman will screams that she is in pain
And no man like me can accept it or even explain
As I am a man and I should never complain
So the sympathy and care I need, it is all in vain

I have my misfortunes and also my grief
Suffering is so very long and life is so brief
Comfort and happiness for others have been my belief
I welcome all as a friend, but they leave as a thief

I had worked and worked my fingers to the bone
So I could take care of my family and give them a home
Now I feel so neglected and I feel so alone
GOD knows of my sadness and only he hears my moan

In my heart now there lies only a poison thorn
From that pain alone I have felt the sorrow and the scorn
I then wondered to myself why I was ever born
Unfortunately man, he indeed was made to suffer and mourn

    We all suffer in silence as the world and universe truly does not care. Humans are a cancer on this planet, we're takers. (Report) Reply

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
