A Life Of Chance

A Life Of Chance short poem

Uploaded by Funkekeme Akposeye


Watching as half my existence has passed
And all that is left are memories, that on my brain have been cast
The rest of my age will find strength in autumn and winter remembrance
As I wander through the freshness of the clear human mind
I hear whispers in the wind that from the mountains I descended
Although with time the story might have been amended
From my eyes fall cold silver streams
To shine against the sun’s beams
The river hated the fish it soon seemed
That a wall without a house is useless I soon believed
And trying to understand why some children are born orphans
And for that I am the unforgivable offence
I have muddy issues and arid emotions of lake view and hang walking the balance
Waiting for an invitation at laughter and joy’s entrance
Driving on low gas on the contrivance of a life of chance.
