Poem: Doing Our Best.

We all want to do our best,

And shield our heads

From the rain.

_____________________

But the only way to the

Kingdom is death,

Even as we try to live

A life with no pain.

_____________________

We add sweat to our brows,

Blood on our hands,

Push air from our lungs,

But what would be the real gain,

_____________________

If all our efforts

To live a good life,

Make us slowly

Go insane?
