Short blanket in the coldest night

Short blanket in the coldest night,
Trying to adjust but not quite,
Shivering and wiggling as cold did bite,
Just a moment in lifelong woeful plight.

Everything falls short of expectations,
Leaving us vexed with exasperation,
Making adjustments in every situation,
Facing life’s trials and tribulations

Adjust and squeeze in, if the world is unjust,
Just smile even if they betray your trust,
Adjust to things even if dreams get burst,
Just adjust and have no regrets nursed.

Wiggle and struggle to fit in to the blanket,
Adjust to situations in life’s gambit,
It is good to be away from comfort zone,
One can’t always occupy the throne.
