Built to Last

Contributed by hauntedscorp on Thursday, 14th November 2019 @ 04:45:11 PM in AEST
Topic: goodbyepoetry

How can I fail
When it was your shot
How can I fear
The haves and have nots
Where can I find
Everything we lost
Where can I fetch
The casual toss?
Why settle for less
But demand for more
Why abandon ship
To even the score
What lies in the future
Belongs in the past
What feels like torture
Is built to last.

The push and pull of life...
We go through it blindly as the roads have no signs.
Great write- a tormenting journey at times....
Well done my friend.

I think I like to
think about only me
but thinking that way it seems
is only a waste of time
when there are bigger
reasons for the way
too many people don/t
have half a chance
but man I get stuck
there is no consolation
for those of us
who only want to proceed
and make right
since so many are
lost these days
in blue
I just wish
we could be true
I will tell you
if you tell me
what you need

holy cow
some of us
no matter what
like you say
were built to

how or why
as Lou Reed
says, I just want
to fly away.

I am with ya Hauntedscorp
big time.

The never ending battle of life
dying is easy
living is hard....
I too read this multiple times
because it was so good.

This actually brought tears to my eyes. Your poetry has always had the power of the Scorpendous One.

// Where can I find
Everything we lost/

Can`t. Most people suck. 😡😢

Sorry it took me so long to comment on this.

Just remember
Don/'/t be blue
The future is Orange

I love your linehere
"The future belongs in the past "
And if you tune in to the cat in the hat
You can hear the future
On green eggs and ham.
Rythym and Oranges
