Have you ever..

Sat and wondered, 
about how life is, and why, 
you are doing what you are, and,
why you are not doing, what thy neighbours are. 

Have you ever sat and wondered, 
why it feels like life is a roller coaster, 
when you hate the thought of getting on one, 
in the most loved theme park? 

Have you ever sat and wondered, 
about why you believe, and why, 
despite it all, you have the faith? or, 
why in that Harry Potter series, 
it was only love which prevailed, and
why in real life, only persistence and will, 
will prevail. 

Have you ever sat and wondered, 
why despite your best intentions, 
everything fucks up, 
and why, just, OH LORD why, 
things never work in your favour. 

Have you ever sat, wondered and questioned, 
the beliefs that you felt were instilled, 
not by your family or friends, but,
by the self help book, which claimed, 
that the universe has it ways, and if you really, 
really want it, it will come your way. 

Have you ever sat and wondered, 
about, why are you always in a conflict, 
about why, you want your cake, and eat it too, 
about being jealous of people who seem to have it all, 
while you are still struggling, 
travelling 30 kms in one haul.

Have you ever sat and wondered, 
when you were told about being "lucked out", 
why is it that you are always out of luck, 
and even though you know that, 
there are ones in situations worse than you, 
you can't empatise, and still wallow about you! 

Have you ever sat, wondered, and hoped, 
that things will be set right, 
and life as we had dreamed, will, 
finally be realised, 
and all, will be okay. 
One can after all, sit, wonder, and hope against hope!

Have you ever sat and wondered...about why it is home that you always want to come back to,about how it is that kiss at the start of the day that lifts you up.about how that one tight embrace at the end of the nights makes everything feel worth it,about despite all the despair, it is only the love that helps you conquer it all?Have you ever sat and wondered, that you've probably lucked out on love.Love, that prevails.
