Is it-


Is it living that’s not right?
Or those that get the chance to,
Those that use it wastefully
Make it a curse to the coming,
To live it with others burdens
Bring you and then hide.

Is it man that’s not right?
Or this world that he lives in,
This that gives him no hope,
Not even a spec of how to live,
Lets him rough through alone
Sweat it to see a ray of light.

Is it God that’s not fair?
Or we that shut him out,
Close him out and lay back
Trying to rewrite the books,
Wanting to live our versions
Forgetting its life we shut out

    It made me feel really good to read these rethorical questions, put forward in such a poetic way. The content is great. Lots of meaning and wisdom in the lines of this poem. Sometimes a paradigm shift (to us the words of 'Covey') can bring us so much closer to a fuller and happier life.
    Go on writing about this. Very good. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
