Life Complexities

Life Complexities

1 min 340 1 min 340

A strange thirst I felt, but the water was poisoned.

Drinking it would have lead to death; 

Not drinking too meant death

This dilemma of drinking or not

For a lifetime remains.


Time said..."hold on have little patience"

Patience replied.."wish I had more time"

I get up early, set out to earn a living 

Try to earn some rest, at the cost of rest itself

My skills on roads I display

While fate favours those living in palaces

Complaints I have many with you O life

But remain silent; coz. what you have given;

Many have not been lucky enough to experience 


By the time I acquired enough wealth

Relationships had slipped out of my hand

Lost opportunity to spend time with my

Children; 

And 

When opportunity came, children were out to make a living for themselves.

O life with you I have many complaints!
