The Contentious Trial

Updated on March 18, 2013

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.

      I enjoy your ability to use rhyme expertly. Your lines are not forces, but flow effortlessly.

      The poetic flow and comprehensive bold stark truths in life make this one of the most wonderful poems I have read in a long time. Voted up - excellent piece - you have captured so much of what we contend with in daily life - your poem speaks volumes to everyone alive - So well done!
