Life is Hard

Here we are
Standing in front of each other
Whining, complaining,
shouting, and yelling
Crying on one another’s shoulder
Moaning about life and
How hard it has always been,
Is, and will continue to be
About how cold and lonely
Our nights are, waiting for something
If even a smile, to feel the warmth
We’ve been looking everywhere for
It’s an equation that’s too simple if
We break it down it’ll become complicated
Deep down lies an urge to do it
But the question is whether we dare to
Knowing that breaking the equation down
Is the only way to solve it
Because complaining and crying doesn’t help
Nor will it change a fact.
It’s hard work and thoughtful actions
That make life a better place
But don’t be fooled thinking that’s all
For surrounding yourself with souls
That make you happy
Isn’t any less important
Complaining doesn’t help
Nor does crying bring the dead back
