Warning, stop here or your mind might get trapped in.

Life is an unavoidable trap,
we came in with a slap,
way out no telling what,
but for sure somethng will get our butt.
Sex is a trap inside life,
sooner or later we have to
take a husband or wife.
It's that or wander around single,
all our lives afraid to mingle.

Love is a trap inside sex,
none of us will escape its hex.
The beat goes on with eating,
it's a game that's self defeating.
Eat all the good old animals,
sooner or later food will be deleting.
It can keep us here,
or send us to another atmosphere.

Then there's the brain,
that can have us trapped here insane.
The brain needs a body,
together they make us somebody.
We can be a somebody nice,
or a person with a heart cold as ice.
Failing to properly direct the brain,
can leave us out in the rain.

If we get trapped inside hate,
hell could be our fate.
We might not never end up in heavens gate.
Or it may be hell on earth,
having us regret our birth.
All the days of our life,
the trap could be
misery and strife.

A very good exhortation and warning. So, I guess Life Can Be An Unavoidable Trap. Good write. Thanks, for sharing. Betty Torain.

Very good, grady. This is a truthful look at the world. "Beware all who enter here" should be a sign posted in every delivery room in the world.

I think far too many are standing out there in the rain today, Grady!
