Such is life.
Posted June 24, 2014on:
Where do you see yourself in 5 years, 10 years,
such questions fill my heart with fear,
and my eyes with tears.
because the answer I do not know,
no matter how much I seek,
no matter how far I stretch to find,
this future enveloped in mystique.
So I do nothing as of now,
hoping the right road I will know,
if I ask the travelers passing by,
who traveled the same long ago.
Some with happy faces give me hope,
and I take few steps on the same lane,
but then I see some returning with frowns,
with stories of betrayal and pain.
Baffled, I just give up and sit down,
hoping to vanish in the mist,
waiting for my miracle to lift me up,
take me where only happiness exists.
Sulking, I feel betrayed by life itself,
It was supposed to be better, isn’t it,
when it was my turn?
but what have I really done in life,
to expect anything in return…
