A life poem

I have to give my best to achieve what they want
If not today, i am sure i'd get it tomorrow
I would do whatever i can even if some memories are there to haunt
just to minimize my family's sadness and sorrow

What i must do is all up to me
other's can judge me all they can
this spectrum of aim that i have to see
so that happiness and peace go hand in hand

I see my luck as an unfortunate magic
hundreds of lies to make it more pretty
i hate to point out the graveness in this logic
and much somber this enchantment to be

Years and years i would live to tell this tale
with each growth a new beginning of the same
How am i suppose to make it simple and clear
that i was not born to play this dangerous game

Now i would stop saying and start to listen
if not today,i would get it some day
i am not sure the technique would help in my mission
but all in all, i would do it anyway.

I am not at all good in poetry and i am not sure this looks like one , but here it is and i hope you understand it.
