The show must go on!

Filed under: Cheer :-D,Life,Poetry — Teal @ 11:35 pm

These few days, the days of the present lately,
I have asked myself a zillion times
What is it that make me brood and fall
What is that factor, that acts so blatantly?

Is it my wrong outlook of life
That makes me focus on nothing, but strife?
Or is it my lack of hidden will
That stops me from being happy, until

Until that moment when I judge my stall
And think to myself, shall I stay or fall?
The net that I thought would last, has not
And life is nothing, but a series of complex knots

Will I have a face to keep, if I fall
Or will I have just that, and lose it all?
Will I just stand here at the cliff and think
And willingly watch my lifeboat sink?

Happiness to me is just a state of exaltation
Like a photon in a excited state
Once this passes, we must all come down
Life was not meant to be served on a silver plate

Sometimes a good struggle is what we face
But that is what makes our success worth a trace
Sometimes people seem to have it all
But we never know, they could’ve fallen from grace

If a change of state brings us back down
Isnt it what , the one that had been around?
Like all rivers flow out to meet the sea
ISnt this the entire truth, one profound

If depression is the sea and that’s where it dwells
When will my life go to meet it, how can I tell?
Should I give in without a fight?
Or be the change , and take to task what is right?

Death is the inevitable, like depression is
But do we all plunge to our deaths, and avoid bliss?
We should not let this negativity prolong
The show must go on!

So although I know where it might all end
I will force cheer and will pretend
For if at this moment, Joys I dont borrow
My eternal existance will dwell in the heart of sorrow

So I take a pledge to myself, at this very second
That I Will take life head on, and live it head on
Who cares if the net might give way?
I’ll still be known as the girl who jumped, anyway

  3. I was bogged down for a while with similar thoughts a month or so ago.. BUT like you said.. I jumped

    There’s SO much to do that I decided I really can’t waste time thinking about what ‘might’ happen

    Beaaaaautiful verse!!
