Happiness is fragile

Happiness is fragile

A Poem by umbraeyes

another poem from my poem blog, this was when i felt how things just slip through your fingers

We live in a dark dark ball
Having everyday a new brawl 
Being obsessed with a football
With our biggest concern being the mall

We live in a dark dark ball
Where many of us feel alone and small
Or surrounded by a huge brick wall
Afraid that we can't get up once we fall 

We live in a dark dark ball 
Happiness is like the stars that are only seen during the nightfall 
So rare, so fragile, smaller than a baseball 
And once caught light shines like a waterfall 
Destroying your somber caged wall
And you feel how your once again tall

We live in a dark dark world 
Where we forget that happiness doesn't last, not all 
It's there but disappears as quickly as if you held a snowball 
Those happy moments you can only recall
In numbness we once again fall
