Chronic Failure

Third in a series of inverse poems

Chronic failure, the death of dreams

Sacrificed to a life not what it seems

Milestones, like gravestones, pass unfulfilled

No degree, no job, just a mountain of bills

No thin, feminine body, no children or spouse

Expectations abandoned like a crumbling house

Mistakes pile up like bricks building a stone wall

The path forward paved with hardship, so why try at all?

A wayward soul no longer willing to trudge

Life creates its disappointed drudge

Waiting for the sweet release to be set free

That blissful state of ennui

sad poetry
