it don’t come easy

its late

he’s drunk enough

he feels

to begin telling truths

I’m not like you he goes

life has been hard y’know

& I’m drunk enough too

not to argue

lets hear what the cat has to say

there’s a woven through story

of women who never loved

those who never laughed

people who died

times he cried in the pain of it all

struggling with the alone

& there amongst the weft

this golden thread

I never had it easy

not like you he says bitter thin

hey fella I smile

to you

this might look that way

but the smile here

is because I know

it don’t come easy

to any of us

but that sure is

the way it goes
