Grim Days

I have laugh i have cried.
Had friends that i had to tell goodbye.

I have retained the kindness we shared,
never forgetting the friendship we shared.

Seeing each other in a world where skin has no color.
Everyone is a sister and brother

Footprints left behind that carries me forward,
leaving behind only greatness in the minds of
those who'll remember.

Heart breaks that have given me grim days and thoughts of why life brought such pain my way.

When the grim days are gone and with the scars left behind,
does it really make me stronger.

Maybe so, for i cry no longer.

I Have Often Wonder that myself why life brought such pain, But i just pickup and move on..I keep in my mind each day something good will come from all the pain we have felt..But i know in my heart that right person that can understand the person i am is out there..we just haven't found each other.Love this poem
