Day 28: Split in two


The sound of the drums might be shattering
You’re out of work and money was tight
There’s not a lot of good things life brings
Two choices to be made – to fight or flight

Thieves stripped the room piece by piece
All the signs were not that positive
Don’t worry, keep your head up
Now’s not the time to be cracking up

Don’t dig your own grave
By walking away right now
You just have to be brave
Plow through and then wow

Deal with it head-on
Let your hair down
Brain and perhaps brawn
Try not to get drown

Life’s never smooth sailing
It will surely pass
After winter, there’s spring
It’s always green, the grass


In the grand scheme of things, we meander in bliss
Don’t signal me to leave with my horse, I’m a princess
Live with those we need the most, life’s full of roses
With a buzz and a fuzz, we have to take all our chances
Forget the gamblers and saloon girls with their bullets
Write some sonnets, enjoy the chocolates in the banquets
Stop in a cosy spot and keep ourselves warm by firewood
Stay virtuous, you might even be a candidate for sainthood
Tenacity will get us through against dismal thrust of events
Life is full of twists, turns and surprises, live in suspense
I get goose bumps by thinking we’re living at the edge
Sometimes sliding downhill like a journey with a sledge
Life’s such a ball, full of locks, smiths and the whole lot
Open our eyes and believe in faith, fame and whatnot
