This Is How Life Goes - Poem by Maryelle Anthony

I'm a sheep
dancin' 'round the midnight fields
Life is like
being white and wrong
or black an right
Once you start to doubt
you can not win
a single fight

Eatin' cherries, eatin' aplles
Eating pears
just to fly away from here
I'm a caterpillar
small and green
I belong to the unseen
I want to be a butterfly
'Cause the ground isn't where I wanna dwell my life

It's a dark night
Paranoia flows in my veins this time
The Fox, it howls
It's eyes are as black as coal;
The beast wants me
I know!
I'm just a rabbit in a hole
But this is how life goes.
