Find me a metaphor

Find me a metaphor for a wasted life
a road wrongly taken
a sky never explored.
Hopes and wishes made on stars
that do not fall.
Was there never an opportunity?
Was I the wrong shaped key
in the right shaped
hole?
What is the reason my life
has played out
to an empty alley
behind a packed theater?
Did I not try hard enough?
Was I always going to fail?
If I was the religion
then there never was
a god.

  1. Once again you managed to capture a thought, a cauldron of emotions and locked it up tightly with a single declaration “if I was the religion then there never was a god”! Wonderful! I can already see that line tattooed on the chests of countless searching or forgotten souls
