 Poetic Verses Of Love And Sorrow

"How We Perceive"




"How We Perceive"



There once was  a man
walking down the street
Was always someone  
For him to greet


Dressed so eloquently
And kind when he talked
Had that special bounce
Always when he walked


So very gracious
To all he met
The kind of friend
You'll never forget


Everyone liked him
But envied him too
So many were thinking
I wish I were you


So on they went  
Wishing instead
They were like this man
Who was so well read


No one ever knew
What was on his mind
All they could see
Was a man so kind


Finally one evening
While lying in bed
He took out his gun
And shot himself dead.
