Despite everything

With all the suffering and fighting

And all the pain in this world

You left this earth 

And despite all of the broken dreams 

Despite all of the struggles and burdens

Despite all of the weight of this world

With the last bit of life left in you

You uttered phrases that no other soul in your place would say

Instead of 

"Oh how painful life is!"

 

 

You said

"Oh how beautiful life is!" 

 

And it is these very words

that carry me on till the end of time

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
