Everyone fights,
Everyone cries,
Everyone wallows,
Everyone sighs.

Everyone knows,
Everyone dies,
For that is our nature,
That is our life.

To breathe and to listen,
To be quiet and loud,
To be ourselves,
To follow it out.

Everyone works,
Everyone tries,
Life is our savior,
And yet our demise.

This was really simple and yet complex at the same time. It read easily, and then the message hits you afterwards and you have to read it again. I liked it. Kudos.

I absolutely love this poem. Life is a lot of things and it makes me wonder. This poem is inspiring me to write another one. Please check out my newest one and tell me what you think.
