The Frame - Life's Challenge

A poem prompted by Magpie Tales # 37

A Framework of Pent-up Emotions

A jaundiced view through glassy eyes
My intentions fulfilled I remained calm
Prying, groping, wondering,wherever it lies
Have I realized now how was it done?

No, my mind’s filled with life’s problems
Endlessly trying to alter the mode
Needless to assume it’s such a burden
A damper to all efforts to lighten the load

A lost soul wrought with trying times
Can I expect solace wherever that be
Must I venture through without a dime
And picture good times most readily

Yes, I must, none who owes me a living
Made up my mind, will not be glum
The whole wide world is always forgiving
I’ll work my ways forward, I would have won!

'Made up my mind, will not be glum'
That's it.

Dear Ms Susan,Kathew and Mr Ray,

The last stanza that I laboured a bit more to balance the negatives of earlier ones.

This is my first ever posting on magpie. Thanks for dropping by.
