A Chaotic World


I have many cousins that share my life,
There is Happiness, Sadness, and Grief holds the knife;
There is Love, Hate, Compassion, but oh yes, Chaos,
My cousin, Chaos can be mean and heinous.

Full of malice and often we have a face-off,
Unpredictable- wanting to ruin my life's mosaic;
Oh the mosaic of my journey has been chaotic,
Full of starting over and making myself a new oasis.

When I fall, I re-build sometimes quite robotic,
I go through the motions like a neurotic;
My cousin Chaos just laughs at me- smiling,
I try to ignore him and go on in a trance hypnotic.

My life shattered, full of deaths and tears, weeping,
And Chaos is clapping and full of words, lying;
Rush here, rush there, just be disorganized my girl,
Chaotic, confused thoughts, with a what to do feeling.

Many times I have known nothingness and had to unfurl,
Like a rose, unfurl my petals for yet another whirl;
Oh my mean cousin Chaos really tries to make me nuts,
But, I am a survivor and will forever swirl and twirl.

    The metaphor is very strong here and I loved how you used Chaos as a literary device; it totally worked! So very well done and the paradox highlighted and underscored. Good luck and best wishes for the contest!

    very nice write and read though I'm not familiar with rubiayat...I can totally relate to the robotic - has been my coping mechanism in a few instances I wish to forget... and I agree with CayCay. :)

    It is somewhat surreal hearing voices of those you do not know, but who are most familiar. To click and sit back is such a novel way step into a poem and reveal it. Your unique take on yet another contest once again surprises me in a thought provoking way. I deeply relate to the last stanza which I feel is powerful. A great write throughout that will stay with me awhile. You are an individualistic individual - my favorite kind - and you give great voice ... CayCay
