The Demands of Life

The practicalities of life

grab you by the throat

demanding you explain

all those words that you wrote,

The realities of life

have landed at your feet

demanding you apologise to

the people you tried to cheat.

The meaning of life

has finally arrived in your head

demanding answers to why

you thought you may be better off dead.

The love of your life

is standing at your door

demanding to know why

it was her you chose to ignore.
