31 Days of Poetry - Day 15 - MEDICINE FOR MY CARES - by McBenny

(... HER POEM ...)

Life is harder than I thought
Fetch me a seat
That I may tell you what I've seen.

Life is harder than I thought
Gather the dwellers of this enclave
And I'd tell you the mysteries thereof.

Life is harder than I thought
For it's thorny fare
Choking the sweetness thereof.

Life is harder than I thought
For to the denizens
It's the survival of the fittest.

Life is harder than I thought
But I hear an echoing voice
Staying my hope.

It's harder than I thought
But I see the bloody cross
Where my cares have been nailed.

Harder than I thought
But I've been given grace
To sustain my race.
