POEM: Letter to life

Dear life,
in regards to the agreement we had some many years ago,
I realize that our contract has been breached
allow me to point out why I say so.

In sections one through four,
here are the things you promised
Things that I can’t wait for anymore.

It was agreed upon by both parties if I may add,
that I would receive land, a house and a car
upon becoming a university grad.

I believe I’ve done all there is to be done but here I am,
no house or car or land!
Was this an error or all part of your plan?!!

Sections five to eight read in summary
I should be happily married
with children; no more than three.

I’m thirty-two,and quite baffled for sure,
’cause here I am unmarried
and my children are above the age of six—all four!

So all I’m asking at this point, is that,
you take some time off to review
what was once the perfect contract.

I demand that the terms be met immediately,
because, according to sections nine and ten
my time happiness, and peace of mind are my surety!

    Thanks Everyone!! :)
    @lizavier4jesus this isn’t about the writer really. I”m not 32 and I don’t havev 4 children….I wanted this to be a little funny and at the same time send a message…so what do you get from this letter to Life? We all can read it differently.

      @ R.R.

      I respond to certain articles to provoke true wisdom and understanding in the minds of those who will be our people of tomorrow–that is the reason for my name.

      Life is extremely precious, an Eternal Gift from God–the human mind cannot accept that Truth, because it is carnal or dead.

      I am not one of the persons who will allow this precious gift to be expressed through the confusions of the carnal(dead) mind of man. There is nothing productive in this piece of writing above–you said it yourself.

      But you have used the most precious word–Life–which is of God alone, to speak futility so to receive fame of vanity. That is like blasphemy against God for your human satisfaction, I am here to rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ.

      It is still deadness to claim fame through the expressions of vanity as you, yourself had said about the ideas of your own mind–nothing of the theme is real. Then what are you thanking people for, may I ask?

        poetry does not only reflect the life of the writer but many different things … you should wake up n smell the coffee and let go of whatever is keeping you from enjoying “LIFE”
        PS … stop using Jesus name in vain trying to depict a righteous life
        what fame can possibly be achieved by posting a poem on DNO??? c’mon … you need to find a hobby try “poetry”

    Well it depends on the person who is life to you–the one with whom you made this agreement. It sounds to me that you made a pack with the wrong person–who walked in the false clothing, posing as Life.

    For I read that all your objectives with life is of the world, but the world and everything in it is passing away–at one time or the other you would still be left without nothing.

    The world cannot produce Life, you see! Therefore we will not see the Fruits of Life among its broken or dead images.

    But there is a Man of Love, whom I know very well. He has promised us abundant Life, which we can only accept and to experience by faith–not by sight.

    In this Life there is the richness of joy and peace–which overcomes the most difficult challenge of this worldly existence– an existence which has nothing to do with Life.

    Eduction, the great job, the car, the husband, the children, superb social rendezvous and all the rest are vanity which is here today and gone tomorrow–we never know when things are going to be taken away.

    And so Life teaches us that it better not to have them in the first place.

    However we are secured in the Life of abundance–which of Spirit and Truth–when we know the Man who will give this Life to us. His name is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Person of God Almighty, who is Love– and Love is the perfect Life in us. I write it with a capital L, the same as Love.
