How Much Longer?

How much longer will it be
before this fog will clear?
And how much further must I walk
to free me from all fear?
I donít want life to be a party,
Iím sick of sounding arty-farty -
maybe I should give in now
or fall down on my rear.
Thereís many who would laugh I know.
Thereís many who would cheer.
Thereís many more would walk away
and never shed one tear.
But I stopped caring long ago
and think itís time they knew
that they can do just as they please.
Iíll still be here next year.

I know the feeling only too well, poems! Well expressed; darkish, but with the hopeful declaration of defiance at the end. Strong and simple.

Enjoyed this very much. Rhyme and rhythm so smooth, it ticks like a Swiss watch. But though it's written in a light verse style and form, it seems to pass through a shadow on the way to its defiant ending.

Hi poems,

Like others, I enjoyed the amazing smoothness of rhyme and rhythm, juxtaposed against a dark, defiant theme.

this describes so much of how i was feeling the other day, isn't that what poetry does at its best.
