as the title says its how life gets in the way of things......

Life gets in the way
 
Life gets in the way
Of all the things we want
 
Life gets in the way
And tells you, you cant
 
Life gets in the way
When you want to be freed
 
Life gets in the way
That’s not what your child will need
 
Life gets in the way
The decision you make
 
Life gets in the way
The life it will take
 
Life gets in the way
I want to scream and shout
 
LIFE LET ME OUT

snowbelle:

Well written and presented. Good choice and treatment of theme. Gave it an "I Like It" vote.

Sometimes Life has a mind of it's own and we are at it's mercy and must submit.

One could say that "life" may be, at times, just one more 4 letter word. Where would we be without it?

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.

thank you for your kind words they encourage me to keep writing. life does indeed have a mind of its own and but sometimes you must resist what it is throwing you or it could cause a lot of pain....

lacey thanks for this comment. it is a horrible way to be but I have learned screaming and ranting sometimes helps, and i am lucky to have someone to listen to me when this happens.

I liked this one even more than the first one I read. It's got a energetic rhythm indicating how fast pased life is today. LIFE LET ME OUT powerful ending. I know I feel like that sometimes.

SOOOO True
Life always has a way of slipping into every crack and dark corner of our lives and we can't seem to brake free of its iron grasped

I love the poem, beautifully written.
