Trouble is

dreams and desires and fears and fires

haunting us taunting us taking us lower and higher

making us work hard making us feel lazy

making the road ahead sometimes clear and often hazy

people we meet who hug as our friends

can we trust them all along till the end

or shall we be afraid by memories of the past

how long how often these shadows have come to last

stop now and dont think too much

life is a journey not a destination as such

for we are mortals as ants in the world

and lie ahead many stories waiting to be unfurled

we write and we read and we work and we share

we are sometimes afraid and sometimes we dare

to open up and reach out to the universe and its beauty

when inside we are weeping and ashamed at our failed duty

trouble is we are kids inside who refused to be wise

trouble is we love everything without a thought for lies

trouble is we will fall in love with ungrateful friends

trouble is we will be left alone writing poems in the end
