Days, Both Bad And Good by Ian Lewis Copestick

These are the bad days
When life just seems
A pointless interlude
Between birth and death.
Devoid of purpose or
Meaning. Just years of
Pain between our two
Experiences of the void.
You wonder why it’s
Even here at all.
But there are also
The good days
When such thoughts
Never enter your head.
When life is it’s
Own sweet reward.
You’ve got to give
It your best shot.
What else is there to do ?
Days, both bad and good
Have to be lived through.
What else is there to do ?
