Daily Prompt:Circus

Sometimes life can seem like a circus

Because, you’re juggling so much at once that,

Sometimes it seems like your part of an act.

And sometimes someone is always  telling you to do something,

As if they are your ringmaster and you’re the lions trying

To buy yourself some time to figure out how to escape and finally

Get out this cage you never signed up for.

With no one to help you, you’re on your own and the obstacles are

Becoming  harder the more you put distance between you and the circus

You call your life sometimes.
