You Give Some You Take Some

You Give Some You Take Some

A Poem by Shadow

This is what was inspired by Ifeltyouforgetme's poem called Shriveled Thank you for the inspiration my friend.

You give some inspiration
But you take the knowledge
You give memories
But you take the will
to live
You give the rain
But you take the sunshine
You give us hope
But you take the smiles
You give us tears
But you take our light
We are left in the shadows
With no room to grow
You give us fear
Yet you take our sanity
You give us hate
Yet you take the lives of many
Come whisper in my ear
My dear...
For you don't understand
What it takes to be who I am
You take the fun
But give us the pain
You give us the numb
And take our brains
Paint them on this pretty
Wall that you call home
You take my name
And give me the blame
So continue to steal
And continue to give
It's unknown
But maybe...
Just maybe...
We can begin with forgiveness...
And give up the war of worlds...
