The Jigsaw (of life)

Virgin jigsaw pieces, all shiny, fresh, and new

exposed to light, to make their grand debut

the colours of each piece all vibrant and clear

anticipation grips you to see the picture appear

enthusiasm wanes, you’ll return to it again

but it sits for some time and exists as a frame

the box it gets battered and the image will fade

you lose a few pieces along the way

some are found but others are lost

and it can’t be completed at any cost

finally discarded as it’s now incomplete

ends up as landfill on the trash heap.
