SOMETIMES

Sometimes we seek what is not there;
Sometimes want more than they can give
Sometimes we think they do not care,
For they choose a different way to live.
Perhaps sometimes our burdens’ weight
Is too heavy for some to share,
That travelling back through pain and hate,
Is too much for them to bear.
Perhaps it’s time to find new roles,
Seek new fields to explore,
And join those other troubled souls,
Who choose past anxieties to ignore.
Sometimes tis best to set new goals
And forget past thoughts of war.
