Life Is Clutching At Straws

Life is clutching at straws, childhood and school what can I do. Teens and dating, mature one day. Jobs and working life, a nightmare from morning to night. Family and friends betray you, hearts get broken along the way. Knight in shining armor, it just got tarnished. I have gone through a box of straws, so now what do I do. Date Written: 9/9/2020

Lovely write Paula! “I have gone through a box of straws, now what so I do? “ That is wonderfully put! some people in difficulty teach that end point and want someone to reach out! That is what we should do! everyone needs help in some form!

when you are out of straws, draw your own line in the sand and stand your ground. Blood is thicker than water, is probably an old wive's tale, despite the scientific confirmation. Friends come and go and family are not infalliable, they are human with their own failings and misdirections in life. F'ing burn the box of straws and look for strong tinder. It isn't far from you, you'll find it within.

Thanks for writing. Love what you had to say. Over the years, I have learned to stand my ground. Family can be just as cruel or more so than friends. It hurts more when it is family. Glad you enjoyed this one. Have a wonderful day...............

Hello Paula … some folk never appear to run out of straws as they live their lives on a whim and a prayer. You’ve portrayed that well in your verse - thank you Paula - Lindsay

I like your analogy, Paula. So often life is either clutching at straws or grasping for them. Still, we continue to believe that where there's life there's hope... Much food for thought here, Gershon
