Nothing is what it seems

Filed under: Poetry — Teal @ 3:25 pm

In this life, my dear you will see

What you get is not what you seek

Despair will engulf you in complete

And leave your existence mild and bleak

For what one strives to do, they cant

For what one wants to do, they wont

This is the part in which we will hear

The never ending –“no, no, no and don’t”

Nothing is what it seems, my dear

For aims and goals unfulfilled

With diligence and obstinacy you step forward

While life hauls you towards the rear

In this life we learn

In this life we love

In this life we fall

In this life we give into strife

If you think you know what lies ahead, think again

The cosmos has a different plan

May be scheming to put you in pleasure

Or plotting to put you in pain

When all your efforts go in vain

What do you come to see?

In this life, you may try too hard

But nothing is what it seems

    No is the word you always hear from loosers.

    Nothing is what it seems, my dear
    For aims and goals unfulfilled

    … well tell me who was successful at the first step? you need to have a mission towards life. sure there will be rough times.. but that’s not the end!
