About the Poem

This is a poem telling of the hurt, despair, and betrayal I was feeling when I was in Germany, my husband was in Saudi, and my father had passed away. The pain that I felt when all the people that I thought I could count on to help me get through my sorrow were not there for me. These thoughts came from my inner soul.

Is This What Life Is All About

As I lay here in my dark, and lonely room,
filled with sadness , and with gloom.
I listen for your breathing, but it's not there.
I reach to touch you, but touch only air.
In my heart is a loneliness that I alone must bare.

I feel all around me there is no one who really cares.
So, forgive me if I must cry out
"Is This What Life Is All About?"
to feel so empty, and cast out.

Where are the ones who said they cared!
Where are the ones who said they would always be there!
So, as I lay here in my dark, and lonely room ,
filled with sadness, and with gloom.
Forgive me if I must cry out,
"Is This What Life Is All About?"

So many times I have felt this way. I too am a poet and very seldom does another poet feel like I do. But you my poet friend have expressed my feelings about those people that are never there when you need them. My hat is off to you, keep writing from your soul and spirit.
I think we all feel this way and it nice to know it some times

I really like your poem. I think you have an awsome telent. It really hit me where it counts. Keep it up.
Kat, I find myself feeling like this quite often and to see your pain in the writing of this poem makes me feel as if I'm not alone in feeling this way, as though others seem not to care. I think this poem is written from the heart and it's great.
