True Pain


Some People


Some people want to die
some people want to live
some people want to take
some people want to give

Some people have family
some people have friends
some people love life
some people wait for it to end

Some people need the help
some people help the need
some people want to share
some people love the greed

Some people are weak
some people are strong
some people are right
some people are wrong

Some people are smart
some people are fools
some people are wise
some people need school

Some people have no mind
some people have no heart
some people keep us together
some people tear us apart

    The Poem very ironic and i think they have a positive and negative point.
    but in some reason the poem realize the truism of the mankind. there are some good and bad people and others provide to be helper to others and others were naturally born unkind. (Report) Reply

    You have presented a wide profile on people. And it serves as a mirror by which to reflect upon the various personalities - - and the type of person one wishes (or whishes not) to be. Thanks. (Report) Reply

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
