A story has as many versions as it has readers - Winter Of Our Discontent


What the hell is life for, to just leave you more broken than before

Is there really anything that goes your way, well never for a full day

Of course, there are good memories, clinging with the enemies

Nothing I do gets me anywhere, and I'm in pure despair

Soon I'll be a wreck, drinking in a trailer home heck, maybe I'll even be in jail

My friends are distant, and I feel so nonexistent to them

But hopefully, I've changed for the better, never been one of those go-getters

Because life is a death trap, ready to snap,

and I'll never be prepared….


The author's comments:

This is a piece I wrote in a matter of minutes to get what was off my mind. And I know it's not that great of writing but I could care less what anyone thinks of it. Life can be difficult, I know but if your ever stuck on how to process the emotions on this rollercoaster just know that you're not alone.
