Things don't always work out like you think they will [Original Poem]

[photograph is not mine]

Life isn't perfect though I wish that it was,
or even just a slice of perfect,
I want to take life and put it on a leash
and feed it and pet it and walk it
until it loves me and I it

I give life all of my best efforts,
and it throws them back in my face,
and screams at me until my ears bleed
or until I can't stand to go back
to anywhere that my feet have walked before

Running away from life is all I can do,
not end it but put it on hold for a while,
reality doesn't feel real
though I know I am here
but my life doesn't want me to be.


  1. A very raw and relatable emotion there... I've felt like that many, many times! Just what I needed to read this Friday.
