Mosquitoes and I

I live
Dreams die

In sadness I smile
In happiness I cry

There’s mostly melancholy
Messed up with scattered moments of joy

I laugh with abundance
There’s nothing to be coy

Living is a big sham
Heaven could be a mirage

I hide in the shallow puddle
Mud my camouflage

I breathe the polluted air
I have to, to be alive

They say death will come when it is time
Till then, along with the mosquitoes I will thrive
