free cee LIVE THE WHAT


LIVE THE WHAT?

I a cynic, I a sinner
I, the opposite of a winner
A loser am I in life’s fixed game
But I need a shave and am a shame

Shameful is this life of mine
Weakened am I from limb to spine
“Live the dream” I hear others say
Alas I cannot dream following another damnable day I slay

‘tis all I have is time to kill
There are no chills of delight and nary a thrill
There is but this demonic day until the next
As I quote blasphemy by chapter and text

I a cynic, belief lives not in my heart
As I wait for things to summarily fall apart
The only thing I am urged to do is scream
But they say, “hey, live the dream!

    Whoa! Poignantly told Jeffry! Cynicism puts a cloud in life and magnifies reality such that living the dream becomes a heartache illusion. Well penned!
