Striffle of Life
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


My life always a struggle
It is so far I say
That I can live no other
I can live no other way

Without trouble I am neither
My sane self or my true me
It is trouble that I need
It is this that keeps me free

That when I solve them let me
Give out a sigh of relief
And in poetry set in
Another work at ease

The world is still revolving
Everyday is problemsolving
Everyday is a new test
So let me play the rest

Of the games of inner anguish
Of emotion in outreel
Lets me write and lets not riot
Lets me feel
