There’s no rule book or instructions.
No safety kit or guide.
No step by step approach to “win” at this thing they call life.
You screw each part together.
Hoping it will fit,
And when it falls to pieces.
You promise yourself you won’t quit.
And finally you think you’ve built it.
It looks and seems just right.
Until you place a book upon that shelf,
And realise again, it’s too much to one side.
