A Bad Choice


What am I doing?
What’s wrong with me?
What caused me to do this?
Was it really necessary?

Why have I got myself,
Into all this trouble?
Trashed up my life
Left with this terrible rubble!

I chose the wrong friends
Who left me far behind
And took all I had
Without me being in mind

I chose this life for me,
And picked this screwy scam
Leaving who I was behind
While forgetting who I really am!

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
