Lingering

They asked a lot of me
but, it wasn’t meant to be
I have fallen

They all say that I owe
but on trees, cash won’t grow
They’re still callin

I really tried my best
but, didn’t pass their test
I shed the tears

I have loved them in vain
and, I still have the pain
It lingers here
 

Todays poetry contest entry was written by J.R.Wells.

 

Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems in 2016?
