The body has gone frail

Written by: Juan Paolo Galua

the body has gone frail
chasing dreams, 
till youth is spent
on chances missed

to walk in vain
in chasing a meaningless aim
to wake from idyllic illusion
and confronted by life’s endless monotone

it seems just yesterday
the heart lifted pleasantly
in reaching a new height,
shaping a good life

but chances are bare 
and opportunity rare
time is a pressure
and people are sperm

Soul’s strength now diminished
I’m half way but can’t reach it
inspiration nowhere in sight
but still burning my dwindling spirit
