The Cup Of Life

What do you see when looking into your cup of life

unknown tomorrows mixed with yesterdays fights

The content of your cup, unseen levels of contentment

my unknown future actions, the pending resentments

Those foul waters eroding the shores in your well-being

the lies found within my own heart I just didn’t see them

Naked shame cutting it’s grove in the flames of your pain

I watch in disgust it’s fear and mistrust feeling it’s strain

You cry! unfulfilled wants from a life lacking fruitful deeds

I’ll fry! for deceitful acts picking poison fruit from the trees

We both lay within a rotted rut! putting a hole in our own cup.

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
