It’s Just a Riddle: The Exhausting Truth of Existence

riddle - Spectre of the Brocken

Life, a puzzle of sorts. 

Full of complexities to untangle. 

Engaged in the daily grind, 

work hard…and play the game of polite society.

Assume roles, act the part, 

flash a smile when the world crosses your path 

and says ‘CHEESE’ 

Yet, beneath the surface, 

Weariness accompanies this cycle. 

Shake it off…

The constant repetition of words, 

actions, and routines can be draining. 

Despite society’s expectations, 

the truth remains:

 The simple act of being alive can be utterly exhausting.
