trial of words | 24 August

Carefree –

 

The daunting prospect

That this is the end of a carefree life

.

Perhaps there never was

Such a thing

But there was a time when such a thing

Did not hold such allure

.

Perhaps life is just unfair

.

It has been fairer to me than to others,

And fairer to others than to me

.

But if you are hoping

For something out of life

It is futile to wish to be

Carefree
