Poetry Life and Mind-ful Things

How Life Is

From time to time, my eyes search the skies

If I bend an ear, I can hear the cries

It is for me to wonder, as I am perplexed

How life is at times, as real as it gets

The violence and anger portrayed day to day

It is for revenge, it is for justice some say

I am truely beholden, this way that I live

It is but one life given, for me to give

Round and round, the cycle of life bestows

Like our earth, round the sun it goes

Event after one, another continues onward

You would think lessons learned, from outside inward

Time goes by round the world as it turns

The violence unending as hearts fire burns

Is it for justice? Is it peace?

I continue to wonder, will it ever, ever cease
