a man laughing

In The World of Adults

Brazenly, dauntingly,
we eke a smile
en though we know
the world’s not a friend.

Rickety, recklessly,
we get a good laugh
en though we know
the world’s not fair.

We laugh and coo,
it’s no denial of facts,
but for strength to strength,
in this, we live a hundred

For in the world of adults,
we live as sobering creatures,
in sodden deception and subtle treachery
venomous enough to take out a heart

It’s the survival of the fittest,
the elimination of the feeble,
the retainment of the graced,
you need be not disillusioned at reality.

___________________________________

It is many a mile’s hurdles ahead
now we are but at a quartet
we hope to reach the finish someday,
when heart is made warm all the way.
