All, Lost


All, Lost

They come and they go
It’s the way of life
The leap to attachment
I better think twice
I reach out to grab
But not far enough
With no compromise
The middle is tough
A step back I take
Again and again
The door is cracked open
But who can get in?
All from the present
Controlled by the past
A little serenity
Just does not last
Such high expectations
That no one can meet
What else do I want?
I have what I need
No way to succeed
If simply not tried
So hard to commit
And easier to hide
Surely lack of effort
No other excuse
So stuck in limbo
Can’t tell what is truth
A battle with myself
Every day I face
Another attempt
Is just another waste
