What Do We Do?


What do we do?

When life has lost its sweetness

When the cheese

Is not at the end of the maze


What do we do?

When dark comes in completeness

When the burnt

Is all that is left of the blaze


What do we do?

When a left should have been right

When the right

Is now just too far away


What do we do?

When the world presses so tight

When the easy

Is not the path for today


What do we do?

When given a reason to quit

When our hope

Is not winning the debate


What do we do?

We choose to get on with it

When the trying

Is what determines our fate

  6. We never give up, we adapt, improvise and overcome…this is a lovely poem filled with truth and valid questions that we all ask ourselves at one time or another. Brilliant!
