This is simply my life
For all its known worth
My brokenness and hurt
What’s done, is done
Life only comes but once
It could’ve been better
I could’ve been much worse
I’m not pleading innocence
Nor am I accepting full guilt
I’ve lived life in blinding dark
On Light’s most outer fringe
Whenever I fall, Oh! I fall hard
Like in love, I freely give myself up
Heart and soul, is all…I really am

6 thoughts on “Existentially

  1. Delightful work, this. Not too dreary, not too sugary, but certainly within the Goldilocks zone of comfortably lost. Again, wonderful.

  2. I love this. Feels perfectly written and I relate to it completely.

  3. It seems like my life too.

    I’m not pleading innocence
    Nor am I accepting full guilt.

    Lovely lines.
