A Living Confusion


Life I live and the life I wish to live are often not the same.
I remain confused which one I wish to live and which one I live.

More I climb the stairs upward more I am pulled to the ground.
Peace of mind, rest and satisfaction seemingly nowhere they are found.

Life remains there either behind or in front but never with me
Alas! I pass my days said living, not living but crossing a mirthless sea.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
