Pointless…

What is the point….
What is the purpose…

Day after day…
This feels like a circus…

With minimal laughter…
But a host of clowns…

Life just drags on…
Little joy to be found…

Taking each small step…
In hopeless mental agony…

Beginning each tedious day…
Upon bended knee…

Feeling the pressure…
Buckling under the stain…

Where is the benefit…
Just what do we gain…

What is the mission…
And where is the plan…

Is this the result of Karma…
Or are we hit by the man…

Who sits upon high…
Carefully watching the world…

Spinning faster and faster…
Into a blue and green blur…

Enjoying our pain…
Smiling as we suffer…

As we cheat and we lie…
Try to kill one another…

With bombs and with knives…
A real and physical death…

Or with words and actions…
That mentally steal our breath…

Leaving us pleading…
Praying to versions of God…

That a saviour will come…
Jettison our escape pod…

But until that moment…
Life drags on and on…

And each distant sunset…
Initiates depression’s dark dawn…

  1. Mmmmm, Nick Cave. Good for brooding winter days. Likely not good to lift bad mods. I recommend short comedy’s or any uplifting music played loud so you can’t concentrate on negative thoughts.

  2. Yet there in the distance…
    Just up ahead…
    A faint light is glowing…
    Or is it just in my head…

    I’m starting to wonder…
    To hope that it’s so…
    That tomorrow’s morning…
    Might just open my soul…

    Tiny spot on horizon…
    That might be just mirage…
    Is light that beckons…
    Despite the grey skies…

    If we’re not careful….
    If we give way…
    We just might discover…
    Dot of blue mixed with the grey…
