Lawless struggle

I am tussling with my life, he said
Under his breath, a secret.
A secret struggle.
Don’t tell life
My wiles and efforts.

Tussling with whom?
Unable to come to terms with
Whichever foe you would cling onto.

Adversary is that bunch of laws regulating
Human life for thousands of years.
To revolt against them means
To face certain defeat.

We tag team.
I and myself, we
Aren’t always the same.
Not always the same wishes
Truly wavering moods.
Laws are helpless against
Insurgents of shifting expectations.
