"We must not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it's all we have." - Marina Keegan


Forgiveness isn't just a word
Trust, not simply a nod.
Love doesn't come with a kiss or a hug
and religion, the belief in God.

Hate isn't a gift from words pushed around,
sorrow doesn't symbolize tears.
Failure doesn't mean disappointment,
and nerves the definition of fear.

Live all these things then come back to me,
but come back to me soon, I hope.
Don't live an ignorant, fake life.
Now take this advice, and you'll cope.

Thanks!  I'm glad you liked that line, I was actually a little hesitant to end the poem that way.

This is such and interesting poem to read! I love the lines "Live all these things then come back to me, but come back to me soon, I hope."
