The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 224 - Poem by Flying Lemming

I’ve never had the talent, of making life fit right
It’s always seemed a struggle, a battle or a fight
By the time I get the day straight it’s already turned night
And more deadlines have been missed

I’ve always looked jealously on those that find it easy
That step from one thing to another, airy, light and breezy
While I hit every wave ‘til the journey makes me queasy
I feel like I’ve never got the jist

As if I’m always walking at the totally wrong pace
While others lives just seem to fall right into place
Whereas I just tend to fall flat on my face
Time and again although I’ve really tried

But asking round I find that everything I say
Is pretty much how everyone feels day by day
I guess they got it right when they first had to say
Everyone’s life is easier from the outside
