Sometimes Life Is Hard


Published: February 2008

Sometimes we see things that aren't meant to be seen.
Sometimes things aren't always as they seem.
Sometimes we need someone to call our own,
Especially when we're alone.
Sometimes people just can't understand
Why things get out of hand.
Sometimes life just isn't fair,
Especially when people just don't care.
And sometimes it's hard to say,
Why things have to be this way.
Sometimes it's all you can do to get by,
Especially when dreams continue to die.
Sometimes it's nice to sit in the rain,
Even to just relieve the pain.
And when we've had a really bad day,
Sometimes we just need to get away.
We never know what's wrong without pain.
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.

And sometimes when people get hurt,
Even the strongest ones may need comfort.

Peoples are lost in the world we live in.
Sometime people wondering what would be like to live in a world with out problem. Some cannot accept why things go wrong. Some hide in the deepest of their soul.

you were right when you say that even the strongest one cries, yes its true because they still have hearts that softens them..we may be strong but in times that we are alone we still need someone to comfort us..

Kristin, you are right even the strongest people break down and cry. I just saw my boyfriend cry for the first time over his sister (Kidney Implant). I know exactly what it's like. This poem explains my life completely...

This poem is simple and direct and it helps deal with the fact the mother-in-law is slowly fading from the effects of cancer and now the brother-in-law has been struck with a seizure and its not confirmed the cause. Any way Kristin, I have continued to write this poem for additional 2 more pages, based on certain events that occurred so far.
Because its easy to pour your feelings out in this manner, the lines seem to jump onto the page? I know it sounds silly, but I can't explain it any more than that. Thank for inspiring this poem to fit my moment of needed help in dealing with life's mysteries and unanswered questions. Maybe I don't need know any more then is given and I should be thankful for that. Thank everyone that has written these poems!!
