a confusing life

why am i waiting
all the time, waiting
this isn't a game, it's my life
you know life,
i'm not in a play, or am i ?
my sense of reality is sometimes shifting
a dazed dream, confusion
is this life or is this a strange dream?
maybe i am asleep and all the events before me
muddled, dreams before my sleepy closed eyes
i struggle to make sense, nothing makes sense

you know that saying, life is to be lived
a stupid saying, everyone always says '' live your life''
life is to be lived, if this is true
why are so many of us struggling to live our lives?
why are we weighed down, problem after problem
if life is to be lived then excuse me .. where is the living part?

it's ok for those who can live their lives
exactly how they wish to, they are the lucky ones
the ones with the luck
they have the freedom of choice, the freedom to fly
because they can , they are not weighed down
rocks are nowhere,high walls are invisible
obstacles do not exist, in the way of those who are troublesome and free

some people think that working nine to five is tiresome, hard work
maybe true though their only complaint in life is this
so lucky when the only thing to complain about is long days
but you have a normal mind, your mental health is good
you are free to feel how you wish to feel
because you can
dissociated, fragmented , mentally confused
traumatisesd, least you do not have to deal with a stupid mental illness

sauntering around with your normal happy minds
your friends, success and contentment
you think you have something to complain about, do you really ?
i've seen this before, on facebook
a complaint about work , a missing tv programme, a late bus
stress what to wear to a party
in real life people find something to moan about
even if its trivial
wow, such perfect lives but even within their perfection
they are finding imperfection
