The Contentious Trial
Life is a contentious trial,
a journey fraught with trick and guile,
a fleeting span of joy and woe
where laughter rings and sorrows flow.
Life is a tendentious trial
where value hangs on wit and style
and destiny, a fickle thing,
sways, balanced by thinnest string.
Life is a pretentious trial,
where Truth does war with self denial,
a classroom where all lessons learned
of love or hate are born or spurned.
Life is a conscientious trial,
where enigmas grow and questions pile,
and fate, the path to greet the dawn
where choose we how to carry on.
Yes, Life is a contentious trial
where each must trudge unique his mile
and make the choice to take or give,
to pass or fail in how to live.
