Life is what you make it

BIRTH came to me without my permission
possibly doomed to spend my life
no questions asked with strict submission
various sojourns from breast milk to sweets

then pubescent hair begins to sprout
I cannot figure my parents out
they call it a  rebellion 
of an immature child but I am immature
but what lay in store is wisdom
that comes with each winding year
to encounter a feeling or sensual dream
that one day will inhabit a new scene as it seems

To wed or elope and to cope with my life
to raise children in the midst of 
love hate and joy as I recall
a generation ago

But as generations change it is time to renew
the changing colors of their state of mind
with a new world order they are left to imbue
to sneak in and out of chaos with a lollipop

to indoctrinate them into societys fold
and the vicious cycle goes on and on
continually with each aching breath
until you say hello to DEATH

    The title of this poem rings true. Many should take this work to heart. A moving piece of words taking the reader from birth to death. Great Write.
