    You strive for things which are easily acquired
    But you struggle to even live.
    You run from everything
    That can bring you what you want
    And in a vain attempt at breathing,
    You choke on your words.
    You can paint the sun all you want,
    It'll never shine as mine does.
    It will never hold up the sky
    And bounce off the ocean.
    Yours will turn to brown
    And burn your world out
    Into the empty shadows
    That lurk behind your every step.
    Those shadows which have overcome your soul.
    And in your fake world of vain fulfillment,
    Are the only things you can control.

    The sun shines brighter on those who share the spotlight. Poetic thoughts to ponder. So nice to read you again.

    Hi BlatinaPoet4u
    It do seem at times that it is a struggle just to live
    and it hurts so much just to breath
    I wonder if it is what I see before my eyes, just painted lies
    Very thought provoking drop poet

    Peace
