just the way life be

just the way life be

A Poem by Rain
"

Just writing. Excuse the improper English. I write how I feel, and that's how I felt. No deep hidden message...

"
everybody answers to somebody
i answer to me
i'm harder on myself
than anybody else could be
been in love ?
yea, a time or two..
ever felt heart break...
yep, how bout you...
everyone stands alone
in lifes pourin' rain
everyone's got their own umbrella
their own way to hide from pain
i've been on that shadowy highway
lookin for someplace to rest
i've laughed when i felt like cryin
i think that's just the way life be...i guess
 
there's an ocean of memories
i've gathered along the way
some of them i've forgotten
others linger on to make me pay
there's some streets i've walked
i'd love to walk again
places and faces locked in my heart
good times come on you...now and then
i've passed over alot of walls
i've often failed to do my best
kinda just the way it goes
i think it's just the way life be...i guess
 
somedays i feel so strong
like nothing can get to me
other times when i wake up 
i'm about as lost as i can be
it all seems to have a beat
like a song that won't go way
get dressed...do my best
live my life day to day
i think all i really know
what i've learned more or less
try to give more than you take
i think it's just the way life be... i guess

I agree with David - you have a fantastic sense of rhythm, and you certainly know how to use it!

"there's an ocean of memories
i've gathered along the way
some of them i've forgotten
others linger on to make me pay"
This is a great metaphor, and it's something I can picture easily; memories are so hard to push to the back of your mind when they decide to come out, and you've captured this well.

Good job! xo

Seems like you took a chapter out of my life, or just a little portion of it. I write with loneliness, saddness and regret. Your piece touches the sadness but acceptance of the loneliness and regret and the ability to move forward and not dwell. Thanks for the read request and I hope I can learn to move forward.

Very inspiring.

It is one thing to impart wisdom, it is another thing to impart wisdom with such eloquence. This poem has the quite reflection of sunlight bouncing off a lake.

There are some powerful words of wisdom dripping from this piece. I hope all that have read it are able to truly appreciate the complex nature of such wisdom has had to be learn and at the same time are able to take something a way from it. We all have problems and challenges in life it a matter of learning and becoming a better person. My father once told me. "If everyone from town gather around in the town square and threw all of their problem into a huge pile so everyone else could see them. You would end up taking all of yours back and plus a few others because you would realize there people that have it a lot worst than you.

As always such a pure pleasure reading your words.

Great Job!!!!!!!!

I love the meter and the structure of this poem. It has a nice feel to it. And in my opinion - pieces that are written from the writer's own personal emotions, are the best there is. :)
