"It's better to be hated for who you are than to be loved for what you are not."





~Luara Moncur


No pain to cry over-no tears to fall,
Their life is over but that's not all,
They're left alone and afraid
Only to regret the choices they've made.

No way to re-trace the paths of before,
No way to change not ending the war-
The war that raged inside their soul
Caused by something they'll never know,
Never settled completely because of a thing called death-
No way to ever take another breath.

Now they're left for all eternity
Only to regret not being the best they could be,
Alone with only their soul and feelings-
And not even privileged to have a heart beating;
Instead it's sorrow and pain without liberty
And tears bottled up that'll never fall free.


The author's comments:
I use to sit and think back on life only to regret just about everything I've ever done. This poem I wrote from the perspective of a 'dead man' and how if they could re-live they'd probably change a lot. But the reality of it is this:they can't...

I kinda like the darkness, though. I like your rhythm and that it rhymes!! [Honest, all the poems I've read today didn't rhyme, it IRKS me. -_____________-] Good stuff, I hope it gets in the mag. (:

That was supposed to say "read". I "read" your comment. Whoopsies.

I read your poem was really moved. Then I moved your statement and was moved even more. I could just compliment you on the basics (ya know, rhythm, style, and whatnot) but the truth is that I don't think that would do it. Of course, it's awesome in these areas, but it's something so much more than that--way deeper than rhyme and meter. Great work.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others, for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness, and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

This is so well written. I love the view you took. I think everyone can relate to this one way or another!! keep up the great work!!!!
