Life confounds

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure , pain, joy
and heartbreak
do the rounds

Would that our lives
could, just be pleasure
No pain or woe
for us to measure.

Why is it, things
go so wrong
bad things happen
regardless just be strong

How do I deal
with the days
that are black
when the roof
caves in
the cheque
bounces back

I have to dig deep
in my reserve
in my internal resevoir
my beliefs must serve

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure, pain, joy
and heartbreak
life can confound

Noble Trouble

Noble trouble

An Awdl Gywydd – Welsh Poetry form

Life is packed with trouble
Are we noble in it’s face
Stand up clad in gossamer
as a dreamer in the race

Or will we stand clad in steel
Show we feel joy and sorrow
Have the depth to fight our foes
Strengthen goals for tomorrow
