Moment of Melancholy

Moment of Melancholy


I am getting too old for my liking
Expectations and responsibilities are piling
I find it hard to conceive a lot of things but still I am expected to deliver
“Just hold on and believe”, yet there is nothing to hold in the midst of this river

They say “Pray Until Something Happens” and I’ve tried PUSHing but it seems like I’m stuck
Or maybe I’m just a human being who unfortunately has run out of luck
But then I don’t believe in luck but I believe in hardwork and still, nothing seems to be working – everything is rather still.
So is it that I’m not working hard enough? Or does it have to be until I huff and I puff?

“Quitters never win and winners never quit”
My skin is wearing thin so maybe I’m unfit
I thought that I was strong, but maybe I was wrong. Maybe I believed it just to help myself along.
I guess this is as good a time as any to bow and close the curtain
However, this is not the end, of that much I am certain
