Quick Sand

Life is fraught:
Caught between competing
Crises and priorities,
Parcelling out time slots,
Racing between
Goal-posts bedded in quick sand.
Personal aspirations
Based on an illusion
Of what could be achievable.
Happiness is an ever moving rainbow,
An impossible destination
Where the profoundly naive dwell
In exhausted confusion
Defeated by conflicting ideals
That only reveal
High levels of disconcertion.

Life is indeed fraught:
Shake off entangling expectations
Imposed by rules and regulations,
Dare to run against the flow
Look up not down,
Look out and around
Focus on what is good and true,
Stand proud
To find the real you.
