Life Is Not Worth The Attempt.


Day has night; light throws shadow.
Likewise, life brings sufferings.
Night is equal to day
Shadow can vary to light.
Suffering is like shadow,
That can be any size to life.
Depth of suffering not known,
Life is not worth attempting,
Pursued with hopes and fears.
Some are sometimes lucky.
