Life Is So Mundane

How life is so mundane 

Routine again and again 

No space in my brain 

For more to abstain 

Testing my human restraint 

I don’t know how il maintain 

It just goes against the grain 

Like I’m locked up in chains 

Will I light up in flames 

Or will I start a new day 

Because life is so mundane 

A new day is another same day

    i can relate.. quite often every day will feel like another of '' the same day ''.. vkind of frustrating , right? of course there are slight differences in each day . i never have anything to look forward to , i get out of bed every day to deal with a mental illness, to be in the house/ garden , walking around the estate , i never have any '' plans as such '' you just need a complete change sometimes, thats what i crave for , thats what i miss..

      Thank you so much for your comment, I completely get it. I just want to pick up, move into the middle of nowhere, with nothing but beautiful green scenery and trees. Start the new mundane life in the beautiful nature.

        nature is lovely :-) when i feel sad, its kind of nice to just sit in the garden and listen to the birds , although would be nicer to see other scenes..

          This does seem like life now especially with influences of technology, money, societies pressures. Life goes by and each day seems like the last. Would be good to push through and accomplish more and make life more exciting.

            Amen to that, thank you Stevie.

            Hopefully you'll rise like a Phoenix throughout the "mundaness". I feel you.

                I think everyone must surely have a bit of mundane from day to day.

                Each day is special as you are sill alive to see it. Look for the light in each moment - it is there.

                • Maxine Smith

                  Sometimes hard to find the light, sometimes hidden far out of sight.
                  But il try with all my might,
                  When I find it I will hold on tight.

                    It can be hard to get a point across being constrained by rhymes, but you have got past that well. The message is clear, life can be mundane. Hopefully we can mix things up and party like it's 1999! You remember Prince, don't ya?

                    • Maxine Smith

                      Of course, and hopefully πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your comment.
