No Such Thing as Straight Lines(Poetry)

straight lines

Love poetry? Check out my book here or download a free copy of poetry.

Written  by Linzo

There is no such thing as straight lines

Riddled with lies our lives mean less

A degree, a career we’re promised  a source

 

Till death do us part we keep telling lies

As if the future can be foretold

By those who can’t even bear the present

 

But life has ways to reveal our folly

For in choosing a straight line, we unfold it at will

It starts with our children tasting sweet rebellion

 

Before we know it, we’re facing unchartered waters in grief

What to do with these unfolding lines?

We suppress  them all beckoning madness
