Obvious.

You set an alarm every night,
Thinking its obvious you’ll wake up the next morning
Not a guarantee

You break your back for people
Thinking its obvious they’ll push your wheelchair once you break it
Not a guarantee

You multitask
Thinking you’ll get more tasks done
The less you do because it is
Not a guarantee

You jump oceans for the one you love
Thinking they’ll do the same for you,
Not even puddles because it is
Not a guarantee

You have very many choices
Thinking that they make your life easier coz you got so many to choose from
The more paralyzed you become because it is
Not a guarantee

You give people the world
Thinking you’ll be in it
Not a place because you don’t get what you give and it is
Not a guarantee

Children are expensive
Thinking the rich can afford
Often the poor do, so…
Not a guarantee

And that my friends is the paradox of life. It’s never so obvious.
