Unkeepable

It’s all going away.

Slipping out, like sand slips out from a fist.

You can’t keep it.

No matter how much you try.

It’ll slip away.

And as time goes by

You want to cry

your heart out.

But nothing comes out

Except the sound of your thoughts jumbled up,

your feelings gurgling in your throat.

Unable to make their way out.

There’s no escape from life

The life you chose

Careful what you wish for

Or just go with the flow

Let life have its way with you.

We are all a little bit broken

We are all a little bit damaged

We are all a little bit tainted. 

We all seek solace

Seek relief

Seek comfort.

But, in our quest to find “that place” where we can enjoy those things someday, we tend to lose our grip on the “now”,  the “present”, the reality. 

We condition ourselves to overlook the simple joys of life. We get so used to the rut that we forget to appreciate that even everyday things can be special. Well, sometimes. 

Sometimes, even mundane things can be the sources of happiness. But we have a goal in mind. So, we don’t pay attention to such trivial things.
