Life Is Never Fair

Life Is Never Fair

A Poem by TheLostMind
"

Walking to the funeral of a person you loved...

"
I walk along that crowded lane.
Wondering how long I'll feel the pain.

My broken heart keeps banging against my chest.
Is it time for it to rest??.

Even though I try to leave them behind...
Those memories of her still haunt my mind...

Pale and motionless,she stings my eyes....
She drives me insane, she makes me realize..

Life is never fair, my friend...
Coz all good things are destined to end.....

I thought that she was the one for me...
God wasn't fair in setting her free...

The void left by her can never be filled...
The funeral was hers', but it was my soul that was killed...

Now, against my weak heart I fight...
Wondering what's wrong and what's right...

Your consoling words won't suffice..
They inebriate my brain, they make me realize..

Life is never fair my friend...
Coz all good things are destined to end...

I think of her night and day...
Wondering why God took her away ..

I try to keep my spirit alive...
Its been ripped, left to die...

I feel her pain, I hear her cries..
Shattered, broken, slowly I realize..

Life is always fair, my friend...
Like all broken things, even this will mend..

The void left by her can never be filled...
The funeral was hers', but it was my soul that was killed...

I wish I had written this line.

Life is always fair, my friend...
Like all broken things, even this will mend..


The positivity in the face of the melancholy leaves a good feel.

This is beautiful, so dark but graceful and touching. Also, I must say I'm very impressed with how good you are at writing poetry with rhyme - it's certainly not as easy as it looks, but you make it look effortless!

Thank You :)
You have said " life is always fair'' in the second last line...is that deliberate or a mistake?

I really liked it until that line, it broke my flow. Its heart wrenchingly sweet. Reflects on the pain of loss realistically.

Filled with such an emotional depth.. the cry of the heart.. the pain of loss and trying to understand the shadows that fall over us. And here, even in this pain, you find a way to turn the thoughts to life.. to hope...

I am glad you changed the last lines. It is more hopeful indeed. Not to say the other lines weren't fitting, but we all need a little bit of hope to cling on and heal is overtime. It is a beautiful poem of love, loss, grief, heartbreak, and eventual healing.
