Random Poem:

Things Are Good (They Could Be Better)
kazfernandes

See her walking in the crowd
 1
You'd never guess she'd felt the pain
 2
She looks, she smiles, she laughs out loud
 3
She'll never go back there again.
 4
 
 
She'd lived her life the best she could
 5
And done the most that she could do
 6
For a while there, things were good
 7
It looked like dreams were coming true.
 8
 
 
But all good things can fall apart
 9
Sometimes it takes a little longer
 10
And so she hides her broken heart
 11
Reminds herself that she is stronger.
 12
 
 
And life goes on, and old wounds fade
 13
Sunshine finds its way inside
 14
Happy with the choice she's made
 15
Or so she said, or so she lied.
 16
 
 
Another day, another year
 17
She looks around, she looks depressed
 18
She stops to shed a single tear
 19
Reminds herself it's for the best.
 20
 
 
So much was lost, so much was found
 21
Things are good, they could be better
 22
She says her life has turned around
 23
And me - I won't forget her.
 24
