The Journey of Success in Life

An amateur poet, being that she has no published poetry works preferring to keep them trapped in her laptop but here they come ready or not.

Journey

Journey

There were no tears

I wanted to shed them

Even they had given up on me

I had great news...

No, amazing news

I leaped up in joy as I reached out

Reached out for someone to share with

I swear I tried my hardest

reaching out till I had no more arm to spare

Where were they?


There were no tears

I wanted to shed them

Even they had given up on me

I urged them to accept my plea

I swear I tried my hardest

Squeezing my eyes shut till they hurt

Where were they?


Who are they?

We know who they are

They are never there

During the highs

During the lows

But yet they reach out a hand out from underneath your table

For what they do not deserve
