Ensnared.

Ensnared.

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola
"

Life adventure.

"
Day in, day out, 
Life doodles out a secret script. 
Men caught unaware, 
Hemmed in the snare of a hidden reality. 
Humanity struggling to survive.
Trying to pervert what is meant to be. 
Oh! What a fool we human are. 
Don't we know that life will always win?

This offering makes a good comment on the source of many human problems. People living on the surface level of life are often "Hemmed in the snare of a hidden reality." They are ego driven and don't realize their actions will come back to haunt them, one way or another. Sooner or later, they realize "life will always win."

Thank you very much for you beautiful and thoughtful review, John.
Totally yes! Life remains a convoluted secret. The ones who think they know all the answers are the ones who are so far from reality. Because there are so many windows of real. And even more of deceive. Thank you for capturing that in such a clear way.

Thank you so much, Shandra
I'm glad you understand this well.

from the moment of that first inhalation, until the very last gasp. life is one adventure, a series of moments held together by a single heart beating an electrical spark and a series of breaths..... Nice one Kay....

Thank you very much, Silent K.
I really appreciate your wonderful review.
Love the sentiment in this piece Kay. You set a view on life as being an involuntary thing in which we are helpless participants. Human needs to be plural (humans) but no matter this is an interesting and enjoyable poem.

Thank you so much, John.
I'll adjust it where needed to be adjusted.
This is thought-provoking. Line 2 is very catchy ("doodles" -- brilliant!) as the beginning of a poem should try to be. When I read "men" in the next line, I started out wondering if this was meant to specify the male gender or if it was meant to refer to people of either gender? As the poem goes on, I get the idea that this means all people, not just men. Sometimes it seems like everyone is trying to mess with people or trick the system or just generally having bad intentions. I agree with your conclusion, that those who hurt or rob will eventually get their come-uppance in life, even if not caught by the legal system (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Wow!
Thank you so much for your insightful review, Margie.
The dealer always wins, even when we do, they know we'll soon be back to lose again and resettle the order.
We can only treat people like we want to be treated and hope that it catches on. Life is a roulette wheel and we are all the double zero. Sometimes it comes up, but mostly not 😀

A slight correction: human may want to be "humans".

I agree with you, Kay: "Humanity struggling to survive.
Trying to pervert what is meant to be"

Nicely played, Poet!

P.S. I think "pervert" wants to be "prevent" Maybe?

Humans are rarely satisfied with their lot. Far from being able to accept the everyday and all it brings, many venture further afield looking for answers, looking for the missing ingredient. I don't know many who find it. Maybe we are built that way, to keep searching for the unknown. Maybe we should all take a chill pill and just accept what life brings. I wandered here Kay,. Your lines took me on a journey. An interesting and thought provoking pen
