the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 119
What life is this

What life is this
What life is this in leaps and bounds
And forthrightness replayed
I cannot help but leak a grin
As my life wastes away

What life is this that I should live
And let it long for more
A whisper in the deepest groan
Laughter till Iím sore

What life is this it crawls like planes
That shoot across the sky
And swims and waddles in the ocean
From my first myriad cry

What life is this describe my mind
Convoluted neatness I require
To build my life on things below
A crystal encrusted empire

What life is this I canít uphold
When life itself shall end
And life I still live in this way
In control of all I can

What life is this I do not know
When I control so much
And yet it has been foreordained
Feelings and fantastical touch

What life is this when you lose your mind
And everything falls up
Make a sense of one or two
I try to fill my cup

What life is this that I live
In conversation of meaninglessness
And Ecclesiastes much it says
Nothing could be worse

What life is this the end is far
And I refuse to change
Listening on the squabbles
Of academia so very strange

What life is this should I understand
And frivolity as I speak
What path shall I walk down
What anthem shall I seek

What life is this that dawdles
And harps about the past
Present times are difficult
Imagine what would last

What life is this when life is long
And time flies by so slow
I yawn and yelp and recognise
Iím going with the flow

What life is this if I should live
Just like how this all sounds
So wrong so twisted so random
What life is a life that counts?
