old man walking – Troiku – Daily moments November 26 2017

 

old man walking
heading to his last demise
knows not what’s ahead

old man walking
hoping for a better draw
winnings from his game

heading to his last demise
his pockets bare, he lost again
heart filled with despair

knows not what’s ahead
stepping off the curb to cross
crashing to his fate

life is filled
with obstacles to grip
do at what you may

life if filled
compassion is the game
despite miseries

with obstacles to grip
chance to live and learn
turn your life around

do at what you may
if you can get it right this time
paradise awaits

  1. It is as you say Cheryl Lynn.. we need to get it right. I feel sadness for the man in despair having lost again. We always believe our luck will turn. Sometimes that chance does not come. Sorry for your loss again.
