Empty Efforts


Forever enduring hardship and strife,
Eternally toiling for a change.
Will anything lead to a better life?

Making pools of blood and tears with great rife,
Feeling boxed up within a see-through cage.
Forever enduring hardship and strife.

Is it even worth it to take the dive?
I could drown, clawing for air out of range.
Will anything lead to a better life?

If I cannot cut my bounds like a knife,
How long will I suffer this tiring stage?
Forever enduring hardship and strife.

Through a tinted pane, I see others thrive
While I grow jealous and bitter with age.
Will anything lead to a better life?

Am I encaged in a Zoo or alive?
Even with great assuage, there is no change.
Forever enduring hardship and strife,
Will anything lead to a better life?
