Just a lament


Seldom Does A Day Go By

 

Seldom does a day go by

That I feel the same

Often I have to sigh

Knowing I have no fame.

 

I wanted to achieve so much

To make my life worthwhile

Alas fame so hard to touch

You just hide and smile.

 

Some seem to move with ease

In limelight so bright

Most driven to their knees

Life being such a fight.

 

What’s the secret is all I ask

To be adored by so many.

Why is it such a task

So few admirers hardly any.

 

Some days I think

I’m on my way

Then it seems in just a blink

Success just seems to go away.

 

Seldom does a day go by

That I do the same

All I do is try and try

What a silly game.

 

Luke
