Life Or Paper - Poem by Zany Bleu

Life Is like a piece of paper
At first people will like you
They will draw fancy pictures
and scribble some smileys
They will color you
With all different shades
Throw on some stickers
Or sprinkle on some glitter
But then they will rip you up
throw you to the hard ground
and walk all over you
Nothing can mend you
Tape will only hide the pain
When they get tired of you
they crumble you up
and throw you away
Like you meant nothing to them
and they move on

    The title asks the question but the poem doesn't answer it ZB? If life is written on paper, it is us that must write the script imho. No matter what anyone says, it is our choice, our lives that count. The world is full of people, if you don't like the ones around you, find some others to interact with. I know this sounds easy & I know it isn't, but I believe that those that love us will always stay close. If not in physicality, then in emotional touch.

    The first part of your poem speaks to me of childhood ideology. Then we get thrown to the wolves in the 'Real world'. Believe me, getting up and walking on makes you a stronger person and you learn to step around the smoldering bolders that life throws in our way.

    A very thought provoking poem, and one side of the Zen coin!

    Smiling at you
