Some Start Up Poetry-My First One

20 May



We met.  We loved.

We gave birth. We laughed.

 We cried. We fought. We separated.

You said I needed you. 

You said I would never survive without you.

I’m here.  I’m surviving.

I’m living.  I’m laughing.

I have our children.

They are the best part of you.

They are living. They are laughing.

They are beautiful.  They are surviving.

We are surviving.

Sad. Funny. Truthful.

Combining depressing thoughts with comedy and brutal honesty makes for some interesting writing. I know at least one person other than me agrees so that's good enough for me.
