No sense

For the Secret Keeper’s writing challenge using the words



There is no sense in fighting,

no freedom to choose,

no voice in this world,

all I bet I lose.


Weary of pretending

one day it will come,

why tomorrow if not today?

The oracle is dumb.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
