Being a Person

Being a person, somebody in this life,
Takes a lot of guts, hard work, and strife.
With doubts and worry, this life is rife.
Living out the days, on the edge of a knife.

It's not like doing or thinking,
It's more intense.
It's not a walk in the park.
Just common sense.

But you try, hard, and then you fail.
What went wrong, why me? Why me?
A foolish chagrin. Indeed. Indeed...
But you don't care. You're not here.

And then you think about it.
It's just a matter of time.
It can all happen so fast.
But you can't just think about it all the while.

You look around.
You dust yourself off.
You smile at a passerby.
He helps you up.

And then you take your first step.
It's not that bad. You'll manage.
It's just a few feet away...thattaway...
But as you go you begin to feel it.

At first it's a doubt, that grows and grows.
And then it's bigger, it fills you slowly.
And then you're thinking, "Is this how I'll go?"
But you finally sit down. You're here. You've reached!

But that's just one day. It's another, no doubt.
But it's just one in a long series of days.
Should it be any shorter? No, you don't get to choose.
Could it be any better? I don't know. No comment.
