The Dark Place

Why does one try so hard

for that which seems to be out of reach.
just to be let down once again

who chooses to work so hard just to fail?
to be lead into a place that will crush you
that place where no one, no one wants to go
Nothing but sadness and loneliness will ever come
to one who is in this place, this place compared to jail.
It is a trap to think that anything will come to one,
to one that puts in everything, everything possible to succeed
every last word and every last breath to try and be happy.
But is it really happiness that they strive for
or is it something else?
Will we ever know, or want to know?
So why do we choose to do this year after year?
Because we have to.
