Enigma Weekend Edition Poem: 'A Perfect Life'

A Perfect Life
By Josiah Inman

A perfect life
only causes strife
a change in the air
the lightning flairs
the man slips away
in the bed you lay
you set the sea aflame
as everyone went and came
tired of running
tryin’ to find something
tired of hiding
from those who are chiding
what you look for
is at your core
all your life you lied
to never let go of your pride
