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
