Thoughts: The Tussle for Life

The darkness it engulfs,

The need to break free suffocates,

Try as you might, daylight eludes.

Like a web, it ensnares and it entraps.

You struggle, you tussle, you wrangle, you toil

You sink deeper….you yield!


That life…it remains a craze,

Overlooked and over appreciated.

Spend it, in mostly a haze,

Spend it….in the maze,

Spend it……as a waste!


Feel the need to jump free, the need to be with glee.

It’s easy when you know how, It’s easier to be told to bow,

That life…it revolves this way.

You win some you lose some,

(At least that’s what they say)


But you want it all and you want it now

Irrational and nonsensical she scoffs

“You are just being a child” she spewed

“Spoilt and pampered, you don’t know life as seen have I

It’s hard, it’s tough, it leaves you bitter,

You make the most of what you have, life’s not a sitter”


True it maybe but wherein lies the moral we seek?

To love life you want it on your terms,

To see things and hold firm.

Don’t trust what you can’t see,

Don’t’ believe you can’t be.

It might be a prophesy it might be a myth,

You! are meant to achieve great things

You! are meant to to be blithe.

    A maturing of style i must say, and a noticeable shift towards the confusion that reflects reality. Good Job!
