Dear Life

Dear Life!
Why are you so bleak, these days?
So stiff, so rude,
So complicated as a knot,
Furious like my fate,
Ruthless like a politician,
Uncompromising like an attitude.

Come some day,
Come to my modest hut,
I’ll welcome you with a smile,
Offer you the best rewards;
Come and embrace me,
Console me,
Sit with me in the cosy winter sunshine,
Let’s have a cup of coffee,
Discuss the hardships,
Talk about the solutions,
Let’s untangle the complexities.

You, you, please don’t be un-empathetic
Don’t be unpredictable;
Don’t be painful,
I’ve fallen on your spikes, with bare back, bleeding profusely,
Offer me help,
Wipe my tears,
Give me solutions.
And, be with me, Life
Be with me!
