poemetry

a way to explore thoughts, usually first thing in the morning.

i don’t know
that life
is a very good idea.
there’s a lot
to like
in life;
there’s much
to hate.
the unfairness
is what bothers me
most of all:
so many people
living in misery,
dying horribly;
meanwhile,
others enjoy
pleasure & ease,
gladly closing
their ears
to the cries
of the children
and their
uncomprehending parents.

would i trade
my unhappiness
for that guilt?
i cannot say
i would not.
