The Poetry Bar

That’s Life

is seen from your bubble
happens to you
revolves around you
impacts/changes/affects you every time

mere existence
means shitty people
weather anomalies
tragedies and bad things
will occur TO YOU

why ask anxiously
is it always me?
of course it is
because that’s how life works
for everyone
