Your Reason

*Requested

A world full of IFS

And ANDS and BUTS

Birds named shoulda

People shaped as woulda

And opportunities floating in coulda

Having become a Babbitt

And never amounting to

Much of anything, you

Reflect in this fantasy

Watching absurdities and falsities

This world gives you

an A for effort

But you really #FAIL,

So you swallow the pills

of life, their bitter taste

bringing you

your first success

  1. Liked the phrasing of this poem and how you wove common phrases into its structure to add to its meaning …thanks for sharing it.
