Odds and ends

Odds and ends

The story of life

A collage of

Odds and ends

The fool picks up

Odds and ends

Adds a dash of color

Throws in some excitement

Shuffles them to

Present a story

The youth thinks

Life is a smooth silk fabric

Lustrous and sheen

With designs embellished

But it turns out

To be a patch work cloth

Bits and pieces

Of people, places, things

Some wanted

Some uncalled

Others unexpected

The curious inquisitive minds

Pick up odds and ends

Never know where

It will fit in some corner

Though past is history

Often skewed by

That forgotten

It is not just our perception

But events and people

Pushed to the subconscious

The distorted memory

Of odds and ends

Some visible

Some dark

The evident affected

By what is concealed

Life is composed

Of odds and ends.


What do you think?
