Life is a roller coaster;
But it isn’t;
It is a turntable, a cheese grater, a hot needle,
For those who believe life is something to be embraced
Let me say this;
Life is a never ending struggle,
An existence that we did not ask for
Of free will,
We are here as a product of nature,
The fertilisation of a single ova,
When the smiling face tells me to embrace this,
Let the idiot remember that it was none of my doing


To my muse


Wizened, twisted
Mistletoe eaten fruit
Life in stasis
Life in mourning
Life in remembrance


A word, a touch, a thought
Sun melting frozen soul
Life reborn, afresh, awakened
Life broken, but once again whole
