Life Is A Trickster

life comes with a knock or a nudge

sometimes, it rings your bell

more often than not

it barges in when you’re somehow compromised

and insists that you take on just a bit more

i, for one, do not want to take on a bit more

i don’t want a smidgeon

a peck

a whisper


in fact

i don’t want any more, at all

i’m over it

unwilling to further this delusion

that the harder i try

the better things will be

my eyes are open, thank you

you will fool me no more
