Life a Mockery


Life is a continual disappoint
The sun all my life has been rising and setting
My dreams have been lost
Desires locked up forever and lost in times l only hoped


Waking up in the morning wth loveless dreams
Oh how l cry
I cry bitter tears
For those not yet born


Life at childhoodwink may be as sweet as meat and honey
But a day after the other it changes to the blues
A daily trail that never stops


I remember my early life
Looking at the colourful world
When the sky seemed like forever
And all the nights were filled with stars


Death is our only enemy
His face is bitter with venom tears amusing in his miserly
He comes without informing
And claims for his share but in the end he goes away with you


So many lives wasted and washed out
Our beloved have departed with their dreams shattered forever
My future is too strange to contemplate
For each day that comes forth I wait for death or success.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
