Today’s Prompt: Simple

via Daily Prompt: Simple

SIMPLE
Life is anything but
We strive and die
To breathe another day
To change another lie
Save another life
We break and holler
At injustice and reality
We are but a drop in an ocean
Small and in a tidal wave
Of heartbreak and misery
Of false hopes and dreams
Standing alone on a cliff
Awaiting the right gust
Slipping away from life
Which is anything but 

Each day I set aside 30 minutes to just ‘write’. Do not edit, do not go back and reread, and just post the raw form of what I write in said minutes. This poem didn’t take the full thirty minutes, but it’s my submission for today (and the prompt attached).
