The Bitterness of People

Thu, 07/24/2014 - 16:09 -- Loki96

What I never grasp 

In my big head

Is why people are bitter

Bitter like an apricot?

Or like a peppernut cookie?

Is that what they are like?

Also, why be like that?

An unsweetened fruit?

Are their wants and wishes unsweetened?

Or were their sweet demeanors tossed?

Leaving the unsweetened and bitterness

For good people to suffer

And I think what a waste!

For the bitterness of people

Can waste the sweetness of life

So I sit on this hard wood bench

And hope for the sweetness of kindness

To never be stolen from my heart

By the ghost of bitter feelings past
