When God gives one a life of quiet bitterness
Does one swallow it whole and let things be,
Or push back and fight for a life well-lived?
Nothing is ever as simple as a yay or nay
Just as gray covers everything that is between.
To deny one’s dreams of love and grandeur
To let older ones enjoy their more simpler fantasies
Sacrifices are made one way or another
To be selfish or selfless – no difference is there now.
