Currently going through a tricky patch in life - Unemployment - This is a quick poem I wrote up today in light of this.

Not Enough.

When your best is not enough,
Failure becoming the only reward.
How many times can you “bounce back”?
When your efforts appear to be ignored.

Time the great healer,
Falling short of its task.
One has to hide the tears,
Behind a laughing mask.

Honesty, sometimes a novelty,
Deep pockets often lined with lies.
With hope fading one has to wonder,
Is it time to find a new guise?

(Sorry for the extremely long delay in writing, I don't always feel inspired, and been online a little less often lately. Will hopefully post some more new stuff soon :)
