OUT IN THE COLD

 

The negative exposed

And hearts froze

Wandering around aimlessly

About this world

And out in the cold

The cruelty of it all

As many trip and fall

Living on knees

Instead of standing tall

Unhappy as the norm

And barely surviving instead of

Actually, and appearing to be living

Scattered about a storm

Not enough positivity to keep warm

Frigid and rigid

And below zero

Too much of this happening in a row

Hanging on by a string and thread

And the little bit given

Yet barely stated and said

Many finding themselves dreaming more

About what they want and need

As the others proceed

To live life out on the daily

Such riches and greed

Feeling the need

To keep their reality to themselves

And trying every single day

To not ring the bell of tapping out

Why so much hardship?

What is this really about?

The screams and shouts

Done privately

Feeling the dicey and icy

And not having enough clout

To build what needs to be

Evidently

Or so it seems

For the world is dirty

And not clean

But try to hang on

Even if for dear life

Try to keep your head up

Despite the stress and strife

Apparent to many in this life and time

Shadows moving about

But prefer the light to shine

Waiting for the day

For things to change

And then sign off on it

Because it’s very difficult to see

Others living the good life

And being a victim of this

But never wanted to be

Just keep thinking and wishing

Upon many degrees

That life will change and feed your dreams

And realistically unfold

The positive hiding

But the negative exposed

And hearts froze

Wandering around aimlessly

About this world

And left out in the cold
