Poetry: “Layers”

More about life and all that entails.



I gather my life up in layers
The good times and the bad
Piled up there
Like slates of stone
Or rather brittle clay

It builds up high, those layers
The events of my life
A balance there
Is needed
To keep that structure strong

For the bad stuff makes poor layers
It’s the porous, brittle stuff
Too much hardship
All at once
It makes my layers rock

And then all of those layers
Compromised by too much woe
They tumble then
Head over end
And all my life comes falling down
