At the End of the Day It Is Only You

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Poem You

Poem You

At the end of the day you have to stand alone

Forget all the social media likes and the numerous calls on the phone

At the end of the day friends you thought you had disappear like a fallen angel

At the end of the day husbands and wives change their minds about love

And you are left alone and teary, no one to call your own

At the end of the day the best person to listen to your problems is you

Talk to yourself, yourself will figure out what to do

At the end of the day, God turns his back and leaves you on the hospital bed to die

As your organs fail, you suffer in pain, surrounded by temporary cries

You can only give true account for yourself and no other one

For just as you were born alone, death will turn the same stone

Look around you, there are no free meals given

It is up to you to make your very own living

At the end of the day, people will console you and tell you they know how you feel

But the hurt is yours only, only you knows the true damage of the ordeal

At the end of the day, people will pray for you, but do you believe?

Are you inviting bad energy or telling it to leave?

At the end of the day, you have control over nothing

But yet, your mind and body is yours, and that is a beautiful thing.

So at the end of the day, no matter what the energy brings or do

It is simply all about you.
