Life is a Process [Poetry: Anytime, Anyplace…]

Poetry: Anytime, Anyplace, About Anything – Life is a Process

By, Donna M. Monnig

Jack of Spades

Life is a Process
 
Giving up is easy,
       staying strong is hard,
Against easy temptation,
       one must always be on guard.
 
Living is a process,
       that takes a lifetime to perfect,
Time is chincy with itself,
       but most generous with regret.
 
Memory is a fickle thing,
       though most abundant during youth,
Sometimes it even lies to us,
       mixing fiction up with truth.
 
Conversation is often just
       dishing out the beans,
Randomness or coincidence,
       nothing is ever what it seems.
 
Master of none is
       the Jacklyn of all trades,
In the end, regardless, 
       even the king’s glory fades.

My name doesn’t really have that much anagram potential so I just pieced some random things together instead of following today’s NaPoWriMo prompt.
