Life

  Life

The worries  are eternal.
The pain eminent.
Control?
We seem to have none of it.
An existential abyss.
We have as many questions
As a suspicious communist. 

Tomorrow is a nightmare, 
Yesterday a dream. 
Today is our only reality.
Everything is not always as it seems.

    Sort of puts us all in the same boat. Can your poem really exist? Is the existentialist real or imagined. Keep writing. Would love to see more.

    Thank you for the kind words.. but what do you mean by can my poem really exist?and the existintialist is merely a metaphor for that in life we are blind to what will come next and our questions are what keep us going.. more to come ;)
