Life Bites

By: JDC Resident

My life is full of tragedy
Hurt and pain left and right
I see things a little differently
Looking for sunshine in the night

I think I’ve met the snake of the earth
And stepped in his rattling tail
Ever since the day of my birth
I’ve believed I was put here to fail

The snake has had its turn
It has bit me once or twice
I’ve felt its venom burn
Realized life’s not always nice

I feel hurt and the infection
I fight it everyday
When I go the right direction
It takes the pain away

When I fight it, the infection never lasts
All I have is thoughts of a better tomorrow
It’s hard to put the pain in the past
But it’s worth it to get rid of the sorrow
