The Man

A Poem About Sadness and Hope

The Man

I sit I read, I sit I think,

About the life of a man on the brink,

I sit I think, I see myself,

Being crushed by depression's touch,

I sit I read, I sit I think,

About the man and what he dreamt,

I sit I think, I see myself,

Dreaming of success or crippling debt,

I sit I read, I sit I think,

Did the man think of what comes next,

I sit I think, I see myself,

my family lost without me there,

I sit I read, I sit I think,

The man’s sorrow has taken hold,

I sit I think, I see myself,

The struggle pulling me back and forth,

I sit I read, I sit I think,

The man has gone, his soul set free,

I sit I think, I see myself,

With all the treasures that life has dealt,

I see my family,

I see my friends,

I see a love inside myself,

I see that darkness has to be there,

For without it happiness is without compare.

I sit I think, I see the man,

And wish I could have comforted him.
