What is life Just an L letter to me Yet here I am breathing like its where I belong Living today at my best Worried about tomorrow and the falls that will come along I’m unaware of so many things that I let slip away from my sight That’s why I lost my way home To the woman I love and my family and friends Like I have to wait for the stars to point North again for me to use my compass direction Somehow make it home I hope it’s not too late to apologize to those I wronged Those I left with open wounds that never closed I hope I pay off the debts that took me on run That I become the son my parents will be proud of when I walk in the crowd I hope all goes well with my soul that along the way never comes dust to take away its purity I hope my face will still be in shape for them to recognize me as their own I have no birthmark but I guess mum will know it’s her son when she holds me in her arms again I hope my future is built on trust and truth for I promise to leave the lies in the past Maybe then I will understand what life is After it's done putting scars on my skin
Life is meaningless sometimes No definition to it especially if it's mixed with good and bad experiences however, after so many years of exposure, we get our own definition of life
Disappointments... Nothing new to me As befriended me since age small Along with me still though grown tall Packed so tight as priceless trove As taught lessons so complete each time To face all odds and walk ahead... To disappoint all disappointments !!
Home sweet home. Where would I rather be? Stuck looking at my beloveds, Oh why me? This is an image I love, but don’t want to see. I don’t know if I’m in this world, do I stand alone? Eyes closed, yet I see the darkness of my future. Eyes open, I wonder, is there a future? They say dreams are a mirror of hidden desires. I’m wide awake, what do I desire? There’s no place like home, a place I’d rather avoid. If I’m a blessing, then what is missing?
