    Red face , Vita mea triumphus ac tragoedias

    Blown apart by the storms of emotion
    Tossed about like a ship on the ocean
    Heartbreak strikes every time it takes a notion
    Welcome to my life

    Fear arises like a specter every morning
    Dressed all in black like a widow in mourning
    Is it fact or just a grim type of warning?
    Is it just life?

    Had my times filled with happiness and laughter
    Mixed and seasoned with shades of disaster
    Living's hard then you face uncertain hereafters
    Welcome to my life

    Welcome to my breakdown and sorrow
    Hold my hand as we race towards tomorrow
    Do you have a cup of joy I could borrow?
    Help me out with life?

    Someday soon life may wind to an ending
    Don't like the signs that my health is portending
    Is it the end or just a new beginning
    In some afterlife?

    May I face the future, ignore things that are passing
    They are only momentary, not everlasting
    Worry not about storms others are forecasting
    Say, it's my life!

    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    I love the rhythm, and the form is so endearing - a really good poem, Pen!
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Very genuinely nice poem. Plainly stated. A beginning to mature thought. And it is an admittance of ignorance before God; most importantly.

    Nice poem, Pendragon. If I could lend you a "cup of joy", you could have it for free. Best wishes.
