wasted

reckless leap into disaster,
curses, I’m afraid,
slight mistake in trajectory
never make the grade,
sadly just another failure
add it to the score
turn the lights out as you’re leaving
kindly shut the door

seldom have I felt so weighed down
by what others say
shaping lives from melancholy
nothing goes my way
time and tide they wait for no man
I have heard it said
life is wasted on the living
better to be dead

    Last 4 lines make the whole poem. You always save the best for last! 😀 😀

    • Thank you, most of this one was straightforward except the first word. I must have tried half the dictionary before settling for “reckless”, and it still doesn’t sound right to me 😈 😀

  2. Reckmore is a word I’d like to see 😉 .

    Thanks for another provoking one, Sun.
