The Cue of Life

I don’t understand
I can’t grasp her content
When I feel so blue
Is life ever on cue?

The way she walks
Makes me see a fork
In my road of life
Where I’m not alive

Everyday, I question myself
When the lucky ones get what they want
Everyday I ask myself
Can I ever be the lucky one?
Can I ever get what I want?
So deep I have pursued this goal
Yet all I have is dust.
Is dust—

My life is so dull
My character so sull
A burning rage
Stirs and never fades
As I walk the rope
And life’s teeth grab hold
I take a hesitant step
Miss the chance I almost had

And the world’s on its knees
But I know it’s not me
It praises

Everyday I question myself
What am I supposed to do?
Everyday I ask myself
How am I meant to grab that cue?

It’s the cue of life
That will tell me where
I need to turn
It’s the cue of life
That will show you
how I’ve been hurt

I can’t grasp the cue of life
No matter how far I reach
For I’ve been reaching all my life
But I’ve never even felt the heat
Never even saw the sheet
So deep I have pursued this goal
Yet all I grab is dust.

In the cue of life
All I have is dust
Is dust—

I really felt the emotions of the character. It is an interesting poem to which I can relate. It is wonderful.
