That's Life

Nobody said it was easy
Even though they portray it to be
Nobody said it was fair
Full of lies and unjust courts
Nobody said it was steryotypical
Biast unruling crimes
Nobody said it was violent
Murdersome brawls for peace
Nobody said it was forgiving
Scaring memories and endless grudges
Nobody said it was loving
Divorse at 50%
Nobody said they liked it
Homicide and Suicide at an all-time high
Nobody said it was brutal
Full of homlessness and poverty
Nobody said it was stressful
Without compassion or support
Nobody said it was going to be fun
Painstaking and tedious
They only said one thing:
That's life

I read this poem and it's very pragmatic. You're honest in a sense of how you see the world with your own eyes. I like this a lot. Great Job

This is very good. And sadly true. 5 stars
