I'm getting to understand

I'm getting to understand
by Joseph

I'm getting to understand
Why people die
Because the bones hurt
the back hurts
The cat is in pain
And there's no longer
anyone you wish to meet

They say hope springs
But what's the point
when you're no longer

The past is done
The future can't be
Time moves without mercy
Tomorrow looms mean

  1. I read this a couple of days ago and it's really stuck with me. Thanks for a great poem.
