Bironga Chadwick Poems
The Irony In Life
The paradox of our time in history is
We have taller buildings, but
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
We buy more, but enjoy it less.
We have bigger
houses and smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgement.
More experts, yet more problems;
More medicine, but more ailments.
We drink too much,
Smoke too much,
Spend too recklessly,
Laugh too little,
Drive too fast,
Get angry too quickly, ...
What hurts the most,
Like being told you're the best,
But because you came late,
You found a closed gate,
And inspite of any given compliment,
She says that you never meant.
What hurts most like an empty consolation,
When all you get is but an empty narration,
