Soundly sleep


Its sad when things don't turn out right
But its even sadder when
You build up expectations
So that fate can't be your friend
Its sad when life's not easy
But its even sadder when
You cannot just get on with things
And you're scared to start again
Its not bad that life's a journey
For there's no formula that speaks
Of the balances we have to make
So that we can soundly sleep.
