Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

This life is an imposition

Another unfaithful situation 

Another broken reality

I thought I cared

But I am so underprepared


Through endless tunnels of confusion

This life is nothing but an illusion

A mirror endless of reflections 

A conspiracy in the making 

A wild undertaking 


Are you ready or not?

To give it all you got

You may not have tomorrow

You may only have today

Blow that fire of the candle away


You may scared like I can be

Looking for a chance to be free

Every corner has been cut

Every detour blocked

Every door locked 


What are you to do?

Before this life forgets you

You become a broken opportunity 

You are your own champion 

Only you know how to win
Don’t let others knock you down 

And steal your precious crown

Take your heart and shine

Maybe others won’t understand

The gold you found in this wasteland
