My life plays tricks on me all the time.
It seems to think cruelty is fun.
Whether it’s a warm beautiful day
followed the next day by a blizzard
or if it’s making me believe that
someone I love could return feelings,
it likes to play nasty, hurtful tricks.
Why must life do this to me so much?
What did I do to deserve all this?
Why is it that every time something
joyful happens to me it must be
followed by something just as awful?
Life is one step forward and one back.
I can’t ever seem to get ahead.
Why can’t I have unconditional
happiness just once in awhile?
Why does my life enjoy playing tricks?
Just once I’d like things to go my way,
but life doesn’t work that way, does it?
