My Life


Wrong is right, left is right, and day is night.

Can you tell me why up is down, and dark is light?

Everything's a little off since I checked back in to reality.

I don't think I trust the things my eyes can see.


It's like a made-up scene in a made-up play,

and I'm just an untrained actor since the day

fate stepped in and I lost the hand,

and now I'm trying to move in quicksand.


Lightning-quick days give way to lightning-quick nights,

pass me by like a magician's trick, or the blink of an eye

If someone told me it would still be the monster chasing me,

I'd have said they're so wrong, negative, and crazy.

Very good poem questioning the basics that we usually don’t consider within our lives. Well done.
