Sometimes by Rachel MacAulay


happiness doesn’t last
and big things become small

and one door shuts

without another opening at all.


there’s no silver lining

when dark clouds hold sway

and light in the distance
is still too far away.

forgiveness is not given
when “I’m sorry” is spoken
and arms don’t embrace
and hearts just stay broken.
God actually does give you
more than you can bear
and sometimes trite sayings
are nothing but air.
you try hard to accept
that not everything has meaning;
things are just things,
and rhyme has no reason.
Yet sometimes
you just smile anyway,
and take life as it comes,
and breathe in more deeply,
content to live on the crumbs.

  1. Love this. Live on the crumbs! Yes, we can do that and find peace and contentment when we accept reality and live in the present moment. Very interesting and well written poem. Thanks.
