A feeling of life

What more a curse than to be born

and feel the hope and strength of new life

What more a curse than to grow strong

and feel the heat of never ending life

 

What more a curse than to be young

and hate yourself for all your imperfections

what more a curse than to be old

and regret the hate for there were none

 

what more a curse than to be beautiful

and not realise that beauty is in youth

what more a curse than to be wise

when all the strength and beauty has ceased

 

what more a curse than to live and love

and only strive each day to survive

what more a curse to know by now

that after all this living we can only die.
