Life And All That

Life is a labyrinth
Without a map
To show you where to go
You stumble down the halls
And around the corners
Without a single clue
Where you’ll end up
Each step a little closer
To that final drop

Rooms full of treasure
Follow cells of pain
Turning into the avenue of tears
You hear doors closing
Others stand ajar
Inviting, with bright lights
And strange discordant songs

Where are the signs that show
Right from wrong
Black from white
Up and down
The markers that tell
The safe path through
From one end to the other

Where are the warnings
That make you leave this place
Before a scream wakes you up
Each night when it’s dark
And you fall through the cracks
To way back when the lights are off
A monster breathing in your ear

Where are the stepping stones
Over troubled waters
The railing to hold onto
Down steep dank stairs
Into the underground and beyond
Leading you ever onwards
From one disaster to the next

Life is a bemusing maze
Take the left and left again
All the way to the centre
Doesn’t work here at all
You’re on your own all by yourself
With the odd bit of advice
Thrown by well meaning companions

Every way you turn
Tears may head your way
Sunshine may stroke your cheek
Freezing winter may be yours
Spring Eternal may touch you gently
You just never ever know
What lurks beyond that corner

Life And All That
