Chasing The God Of Opportunity

we are the trials and tribulations
of the next generation
we fill the cracks
smooth out the dumps
clear the path
to the promise horizon
yet, we soon forget our days
torture our weeks into months
bit by bit
stack the years
one by one
for what?
to say we lived, did we?
or just complete the circle
do what was expected
who cares, who gives a toss?
we are merely widening
the road
for the next lot!
potential without humility
a human failing
chasing the God of Opportunity
paying lip service to whatever ear
pays the dividend
the rules of life
readjusted
but humanity moves no further!

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
