We All

We All

A Poem by Debbie

I just started writing things down when they came into my head, so I hope you like it.


We all laugh

We all cry

It’s hard for us to say goodbye

We all love

We all hate        

It’s time to stop and think

We all live

We all die

One day we will all have to say goodbye

We all have friends

We all have foes

But in the end they are one in the same

For we don’t know what tomorrow holds

 So laugh or cry

 Love or hate

 Just remember that in the end you choose your own fate

 Love people for who they are

 Not who you want them to be

 Because we live and we die

 And in the end we will all have to say goodbye

Creative expression can be a great therapy for releasing tension and anxiety, especially following personal challenges! Good solid poetic write – laying bare you’re emotional confrontations. Although, the French have a great expression of addressing a grieving goodbye; they say ‘jusqu'à ce que nous nous revoyions’ (till we meet again)! Thanks for the share ….
