Just Musings…

a poem by Joy

This world will not let me be
On my own, as I wish to be
It either comes and takes my ALL
Or seduces me towards a fall.


Are you a Need or are you a Want
Or just a prize catch, I proudly flaunt?
You make me feel good, you make me feel nice
But for a life time, does that suffice?


As I reach for the distant stars, I see
A shooting star, break free like me
Snapping off ties from loved ones around
It disintegrates into nothingness, without a sound.
