In A Quandary

In A Quandary

Everything feels weird to me,
surreal and out of whack...
No matter how I shuffle them
the cards don't seem to stack.

I try to play by all the rules
and play an honest game...
and gravitate to those in life
who choose to play the same.

But somehow it gets all twisted
and I end up in knots...
Wondering how it all went wrong,
like gambling with slots.

I'm dazed and in a quandary
as I sit and type this out...
and wonder if I'll ever
figure this life thing out!

      Life is tricky business, isn't it. It's good when we have a company to share it with though =)

      My life has been a Quandary and I know I will never get it. So take one day at a time and keep grinning and loving those who put me in the Quandary I'm in. There is hope:0)) just keep looking for that light at the end of the quandary tunnel.

      Thank you, Whisperer. I am not one who is apt to give up...on a journey to the end!

      Don't ever give up. Remember we only experience what the mind creates.When we learn how to think then our thoughts will work for us and not against us.

      Oh what fun, so clever. Life is a complete game isn't it. Not many people these days in my opinion play an honest game. Great hub and voting up.
