Sometimes

by Rhoan Matheson

Sometimes we just need to be told
That all will be okay
Sometimes open arms extended
Can soothe the fears away

Sometimes dark days surface
With no end in sight
Sometimes just a tender word
Seem to make it right

Sometimes we do hurt
Where it cannot be seen
Sometimes we must read
Of the lines, things between

Sometimes it looks to us
That nothing is in place
Sometimes we cannot stand
Except for saving grace

Sometimes we seem to think
This is our lot in life
Sometimes we crave for peace
When all we have is strife

Sometimes it seems to be
Just us against the odds
Sometimes we crave for covering
Like peas in a pod

Sometimes the truth
Will never be revealed
Sometimes the wounds
Doesn't find time to heal

Sometimes the greatest battle
Happens in the mind
Sometimes victor, sometimes victim
Yes, it happens sometimes
