Human Struggle - Poem
This world is so big, so vast
It's hard to think we'd get anywhere fast.
So why do we look ahead and cry
That it should take so long to die?
Every moment can be agony for us,
And there is no joy without trust.
Will we be able to reach our hearts
Without tearing each other apart?
It's a struggle to strive toward our dreams
When all we want to do is scream!
We protect ourselves with anger
Hoping to one day be manager
In an organization against our values.
What can be done when you
Have no options for happiness left?
No choice seems best.
Crash and burn this path of strife
And start again in this life!
You have to fall to get back up.
You have to live for it to ever be enough.
The only thing this large world can offer
Is the space to learn and grow and start over.
Camping up in a mountain staring out at more, taller mountains across the way, it was impossible not to shed away fears and find comfort in the fact that the world will provide all you need if you just let it by moving forward. We struggle with obstacles everyday. Worse, many of us tend to go through struggles that lead us in directions we never really intended. Are you pursuing a path because it'll pay more money when what you really want is freedom to be the unique individual that you are? Are you telling yourself you have no option but to remain in a setting that forces you to behave in ways that are against your beliefs? Let it go. This world has so much more to offer than the little world you limit yourself to. That is why it is so big and so vast and we have time before we die!
