Life is not at all silky smooth
Bitter will always be the truth.
With words ruthless as swords.
Muddy paths and thorny roads
Encompassing the long expedition.
Everywhere you will find competition.
Get going with least expectation.
Reaching the reality needs excavation.
Life is not at all a bed of roses.
Loads of spikes too it encloses.
It's hard to decide the right and wrong.
Lonely will you feel in the lofty throng!
Life won't be charming as fairy tales.
Rather smudged with tornados and gales.
Truly difficult is a life's voyage,
Quite unpredictable to envisage.
Life is not at all like Utopia
Tinged with purple and fuchsia,
Or crowded with fictional figures.
Rather to the unknown it triggers.
With cloudy skies and misty trails
To an unseen destiny life sails.
From beyond the foggy horizon
Life oozes out its sweet poison
