Just Behind

Just Behind

A Poem by Amata Luna
"

When honesty is in tears, hypocrisy comes to laugh...

"

I’ll speak both in riddles; I’ll speak not my mind

I’ll speak what my heart feels and what I’m thought to stand

Sometimes life is unfair, but people are worst to bear

That’s why I learned how not to cry, worst than what makes me with despair

 

Tears are heavier than tons of stones

Hearts are softer than cotton rolls

Heads are harder than walls compared

Hands are trickier than magic ensnared

 

You may count many but only few will stand

You may look on all but only One will last

Not all people seem the same as they look they are

For time changes man as leaves changes ground

 

Who makes the wind blow and who knows where it comes?

Who makes life goes and takes it just for once?

Who makes life as it is and different another time?

Who makes things easy and who makes it dull?

 

Why smile when there is heartache

Why laugh when things go wrong?

Why joke when your heart grumbles

And out of your lips come nasty preambles?

 

I counted so many but I found only a few

I trusted people but a many betrayed me to be slew

I called on everyone but only One went on

I did everything but all I got is a hollow hole

 

That’s why I learned never to put trust

In men or man alone

For once upon a time they left me alone

With nowhere else to go but behind a bush of sorrow

I wrote this poem while crying in the midst of a forum. :D Gee. Just pouring my heart out. That's why I 'paint' the fonts red since I feel like crying and laughing at the same time just to ease the pain. I hope you'll take the time to read this one.

The poem speaks for itself and speaks a volume..... The ending was the best to top it all......

I love all the lines here...They're just brilliant at all points...
But this... 'Tears are heavier than tons of stones' is my favorite...
I'm quite touched and moved while reading your poem...
Great work...
