Life In A Lie

Dreams break
Houses shake
Your heart is shattered
You got to live your life
Even if you know it's tattered

Life is not cake
Troubles in your wake
Your hopes lie cut up
The voices in your head don't listen to you
Even if you say shut up

You concentrate
But the troubles will be mixed up
In your somehow good life
Things are never gonna be fixed up

Your emotions need an outlet
But you find only an inlet
Of all disappointments, hopes, sorrows and joy
Cluttering your brain
But it's all a great big lie

Tattered life
Full of strife
Eating you to the marrow
Wish you could break everything
And fly away like a sparrow

Life is not a bunch of roses
Even if you have a few supporting crutches
Is it fair
To be robbed of
An only love's fair share?

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
