Bleak Arrival

His jovial exterior
belies and unyielding sorrow;
a relentless onslaught of despair
birthed from the unsettling realization
that existence is brimming with pain
and the dreams he dared dream as a child
were nothing more that fruitless attempts
at escaping the grim reality that awaited him.
