life is so unkind

it is far from being fair
and i take umbrage at it
life can be so cruel
and knock a person down
it can take a happy man
and turn him inside out
steal his identity
and twist his thoughts around
years of life take their toll
and create a false reality
but worst of all is knowing
there is nothing i can do
