Life is not a Sine Wave
Series: A Collection of Sonnets
Succeeding: Sonnet II
life is not a sine wave.
with its peaks and troughs at one frequency,
all spaced by a regular amplitude
up and down, predictable, never changed.
life is more like a radio station,
with words or music you cannot turn off
some days are good with every play or note
some days it feels like some shows will not end.
and such is life; some frequencies are good,
some not; though life cannot so soon turn off.
so life endures the static of it all
in hope of finding one good song or word.
nine days in row it seems harsh sound is all,
the tenth will make or break all left of hope.
