Funny Life Poem

I am 18 yrs old, a mother of two. I work a dead-end job at a gas station in the small town that I live in. I know that sounds all horrible, but that's me. I always find the funny sides to things going on in my life. Right now I am at a cross roads in my life, I want to go to college, or do something else more productive, but I really don't know what to do. I am not really good at much of one thing in particular. That's what this poem is about, me finding my way through life!

Amazing! "I guess I'll have to re-apply." That line says it all. Very often...almost every day, such thoughts come in my mind. I find this poem very close to my own reality. Nice work, poet!

What A Life!

Published: February 2011

I once applied for a life online
Sadly however, I was declined
They told me I was not eligible
So I wrote them a letter to complain
They sent it back, it was not legible
So on with my search for a life
This has given me a bit of strife
I don't have enough money or any good looks
I can't paint a picture or write a book
I can barley chew gum and walk at the same time
I can even be quiet enough to become a mime
I once asked a professor where to find one
He directed me straight to an insane Asylum
I can't play the drums or even a fife
I guess I'll have to re-apply, What a Life!
