I never thought ...


I never thought – a poem by P.K. Odendaal – November 2018
 

I have never thought I would reach this age
where I live in doubt of what life is about
Having reached stalemate in my business of late
Only to hope that my life has more scope.
Than getting up each day with nothing else to say
That the world has gone crazy and the people quite lazy
Not for any other reason than the change of the season.
From the pursuit of kindness to the age of blindness
 
And thus I stand in awe of the things that I saw
That people do to create something new
And getting upset with the things that they sweat
calling it fame as they play a trivial game
by trying to impress with some fake success.
