Snow-globes.

Snow-globes.

A Poem by rach

Lately, I have come to feel like my world
is contained in a snow globe
on a child's bedroom shelf.
Every time the dust settles to the ground
its shaken around again.

When I was a child,
I thought, that when I grew up
I would just know;
How to handle any situation.
How to maintain complete control.

Someone said that life is like a roller coaster,
I disagree.
My whole world is.
Travelling at 66,600 mph and spinning at 1,000
leaves everything unstable.

I never learnt how to gain control.
Its foolish to have ever thought I could.
But what I learnt from society,
is how to pretend,
and fool the next generation.

Life is what you think it is. Each person has his own philosophy of life. This poem made you become so familiar with me as I was reading it. Some experiences in life, you have aptly outlayed. Well penned; Happy new year Rach...

Don't we all know how to fool the world?
Intelligence and patience is the key :)
You have become much more vulnerable with your writing, letting breezes of your thoughts wander in our closed minds. Thank you
