Good and Bad

Regina Puckett


Since it didn’t happen to you

You’re not certain if my pain is true

You saw my tears and heard my scream

But you wonder if my pain is too extreme

Is it because you don’t see how deep the cut goes

Because the most profound ache seldom shows

It hides inside my heart and eats at my mind

Leaving my onlookers confused and blind

If you can’t understand what I’m feeling

Step aside and leave me to do my own healing

I’ll weather this cruel storm and take life’s beating

And try to remember that both good and bad are often fleeting
