Sometimes I just wish
I'd just never been born
when down and out
and just too forlorn

Sometimes I just wish
that I were just dead
when the future looks bleak
and I just can't get ahead

Sometimes I just can't take
just one more day
when my smile's just fake
and hope's run away

Sometimes I just sigh
a heave of regret
and then I just cry
I just can't forget

Sometimes just a ray of light
just pierces the darkness
just illuminates the starkness
and just gives me the strength
to go just one more length

Sometimes ... just always
just the glimpse of a child
perhaps just a boy
who's only just three
just blows it all away
and just takes the sorrow from my day
with just that impish sparkle in his eyes
and I just know in my heart
it's just no disguise

That just happened
just today
it was only just fateful
but I'm just so grateful
and I just knew for sure
that he was pure
that he is just free
that he just won't grow up
to be just like me
Experience is a brutal teacher.

Glad to see you hit 'submit' on this one shark.

I can appreciate the sentiment.

I luckily, have 2 young nieces who's presence allows me to forget about all the junk swirling around in my head.
To experience the childish wonderment through their eyes, be silly with them, even if it is for just a few hours at a time, every once in a while.
Presence is the key, for all we have is now.
All we ever have is right now.

Thank You very much for this poem it is pure you are pure. It has helped me like a rope dropped down in my pit to climb out to refocus on the now on what is good in my life. The struggles of every day the we go through that you go through and us being there for one another the understanding of the insanity. That we can rise up and restore our birth right that you are brave and beautiful to share with no fear the sage you are I see here thank you!!! smile

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain."
