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?
