Life Isn't a Day at the Beach

Updated on February 26, 2015

Life’s a bit**

I think of all its dirty tricks

The jokes it plays

the suffering it gives

Ugliness all around

no gentleness to

be found

It takes never

giving much in return

sacrifices you incur

cruelty out lives kindness

Justice begets blindness

leaving you frustrated, angry

for every wrong that’s

not righted

Problem after problem

you damn tomorrow

Life’s a bit**

gets its kicks off

your problems

delivering a ransom to

priceless for payment

Destroying any self respect

you fought so hard to get

in the end all you

have is the life

you’re left with

      life isn't a day at the beach: but it can be when I read your hubtastic writing, prose and verse. It's like basking in the sun and your inimitable golden glow!

      Radiant you are!!!
