Poem - The Fee Of Life
One of my poems
Written in response to an aquaintance constantly complaining about how my life was so much more 'exciting' than hers, mainly because I made the effort and did things.
I suppose I was feeling a bit grumpy about all her complaining and her failure to see what the good parts of her life were.
I hope you enjoy the read
There are always costs to be paid for anything in life...
Every theory has its season
Every idea has its day.
There seems no rhyme or reason
Why I should feel this way.
I’m told a hard-luck tale,
You bore me with your woes.
I realize you choose to fail,
That’s the plot you chose.
I think I'll find another way.
I see the promise that life holds
The path I have to take.
And as I walk these lonely roads,
The choices I have to make.
I know the path that I choose
Will lead where I need to go
It is not my fate to lose.
I’ll keep traveling even though
Sometimes it feels so fake.
You think you understand my life?
There's so much more to know.
Self-knowledge is my key
I’m my only chance at ‘Me’
I’m the hero of my plot
A role you’ll never play
For while I go boldly to face my lot,
You fear the price to pay,
While I’ll gladly pay the fee.
