Life is Life (Poem 2019 – 68)

Teenagers are funny things, some days they mutter under their breath and grunt in response to everything, and on other days they are chatty, pleasant and helpful… seemingly for no reason either way. ¬†Although my inner cynic might be forgiven for thinking that it’s all a devious plan on their part to ensure they remain on Santa’s good list!

(poem a day: day 23)


Life is life

Why?
I don’t know
Why?
Because I said so
Why?
Just do it
Why?
For the love of God will you just shut up

Sometimes there is no why
Life is just life and
things are just what they are

Life is life, for you, for me
We choose, we get given
We win, we lose
We try, we give up
Life continues

Without our choosing, trying or losing

Life is life
