They will leave you
Don't think that
They will stay forever
They will soon forget you
Coz they will meet new ones
Stop saying that
Friends will always be friends
Read it from bottom to top ūüėĀ

No matter how LIES races
On the track of life
the TRUTH would surely prevail

just because everything is
nothing is ever
written in ink and stamped on paper
because if whatever we do will be
why do we let the present be
dictated by the present
when nothing seems to be
right and
while no one is
arguing about the fallacies
we keep
telling ourselves to evolve
sticking to the devolutions of the past
there simply is no way we can continue
lying to ourselves
we have to stop
we have to stop being backwards

Life isn't fair.
So one can't always say,
everything happens for the best.
You never know what may come, but
expect the worst in life.
Stay positive and never
having regrets, is stupid.
Life will teach hard lessons, but
Sometimes it may get unbearable,
thinking it's time to quit.
It may sometimes help, to go on
But the utmost truth is,
Life is absolutely cruel, they say.
Life - yay or nay?

This poem is rooted in play. If you read this poem in a linear fashion based on the rules of the English language, it will be nonsensical as if Jabberwocky wrote it.

If you take a step back and look at the form and structure and forget a little of what you think you know then you might understand how the narrative flows. And if you dig a little deeper, you might find a few Easter eggs for further contemplation.

You are the one for me.
But all I keep thinking is,
Now that you are gone
I never deserved you, I know

Still it was so beautiful
Life did have its ups and downs
But I was the happiest with you
You were happy with me

I know how much I meant to you
Even as I was most flawed
You defined perfection to me
You loved me with all your heart.
First attempt on reverse poetry.
