LIFE IS NOT A BED OF ROSES~by Nalini Starr


 

 

LIFE IS NOT A BED OF ROSES

When you read my poetry
Do you see it in your mind clearly
Do you see the pictures written there?
Let your imagination take flight
By the words I write
Everything will not be rosy
When you read my poetry
Don’t expect a fantasy
You will be faced with the stark reality
About life and its atrocities
In your mind you will see poverty
And sadness and despair
You will see people struggling
And living in fear
Children will be crying
Roaming the streets
No shoes on their feet
Begging for something to eat
Young girls standing in the corner
Wearing skimpy attire
Putting themselves out there for hire
The homeless lying in the streets
Shivering in the cold
In their hands an empty bowl
Begging for money
To feed their aching bellies
Girls scared to go to sleep
Seeing monsters in their head
Refusing to see the monsters on their bed instead
Mothers begging in the streets
So their children will have food to eat
You’ll see the rich getting richer
And the poor getting poorer
No one caring for each other
People will be dying daily
Because they can’t afford to be healthy
Junkies will be roaming everywhere
Because no one seems to care
When you see this picture in your mind so clear
Will it touch your heart
And make the tears start
This will be a sad poem,no doubt
And will give you something to think about
Life is not a bed of roses
As you will seee
After reading my poetry
