Life Is What Life Is

Through all the ups, all the downs,
Some will be there, some can't be found.
If they won't care as they should, so be it.
This is life in the way that I wish to see it.

You can give your all, or you can try not.
When they decide to leave, what have you got?
You build it up, then it breaks away.
This is life in the way I see it today.

Days come and go, true hearts stay close.
Without happiness, love is an imitation at most.
You haven't stayed close, it's hard to love you,
This is life in a way that is sadly true.

To leave behind such a feeble mind,
forget it and pursue someone real.
This is my goal, and in time...
This will be life and the way that I feel.

touching and compelling. Hard to know what he could love about somebody with a feeble mind in the first place.
Life is like a river full of waves. We get the meaning of life deeply only when we enjoy crests and troughs of the waves equally. Chandan
we enjoy life only when we search life through joy as well as sorrow. Chandan
Great rhymes, I like the blunt vine this poem puts off
I love it but you can make it a bit small and reapeat the word this will be life
