The future of life keeps getting shorter.
I know I must seem like a dooms day reporter.
But sometimes news ain't bad.
It just depends on if you're sad.

You see I'm to the point that I don't care.
I've lived too long, no one to share.
And I truly don't understand.
My life that's guided by his hand.

Truly like Job, nobody knows.
What's going on with ghostly foes.
The inhumanity we see.
We're never sure of what's to be.

No rhyme or reason to the pain.
What's going on's another plane.
No counsel's worth a single dime.
The only answer will come with time.

    Hi Robert... sad write, but it's one that I believe many can relate to. Surround yourself with friends... even friends here on poetry soup. Hugs

    Robert, I hope you learn to enjoy your life. I am facing the fact that my mortal life may be a lot shorter than I ever expected. It's strange the trials we face in this life. oh thanks for the heads up.I had written MORE noble on my paper but typed it in without the word More!!!
