If life was a newspaper: Poetry

Let us try to imagine life as a newspaper and see how would this imagination turn out to be.


If life was a newspaper 

what would it read?

maybe how we are all tired of being a humans 

for its an ominous and greedy breed 

Would the pictures be coloured? 


Or may be black and white 

would it be a bulky one flooded with miseries 

and would stories of happiness be feather light? 

Studded with breaking news 


Of how expectations killed a dream again 

editorials of what we ought to be 

As per others 

shares and stocks of smiles and pain 


Would anyone even bother to subscribe 

Wouldn’t  we too be crushed and thrown in the garbage?

what if life was like a newspaper?

Would there be peace on any page?
