Life

Life is at a standstill

November 19, 2010

it has been never been like this,Life is at a standstill
not quite sure of what i want
don’t know what more that i need to do,
feels like a soul devoid of life;

one moment my joy knew no bounds,
a new beginning is what i got,
a new meaning to a lonely existence,
i was happy;

as reality dawned on me,
i felt my happiness come crashing down,
all in one big thud, i wondered
if my luck was anything but bad;

i try to find a reason,
i try to find a cure,
i tried all that was possible,
but it feels as if my life has come to a standstill;

i don’t want to give up,
i don’t want to cave in so easily,
so i am desperately plotting my revenge
against a life that has become mundane;
(and take control of it once and for all
before i lose my sanity and question my very existence)

    Life is so mundane, that we don’t even want to keep going sometimes.
    What’s the point in working, what’s the point of living, What’s
    the point, I really don’t care about anything anymore, feeling.

    Your reason, for your existence, is to know God and love him. You were created in his image. You are his child and he loves you. Really I’m not kidding. God is always creating something new, you have to let him come into your heart and let him recreate you. Outside in the world, it’s just cold, boring, everyday things to do. Always looking outside to fill that emptyness. Ask Jesus to come and fill your heart with Joy once more.

    Awaken by angels
    My soul almost died at one point of time
    But the angels came and woke me at night
    Settled down with sustained sorrow
    It was too deep and dark to find something to follow

    To fall in love is to fall into a prey
    To keep safe is too pull yourself away
    Being extinguished from an affair
    There’s nothing more to show you didn’t care

    The angels lay me the path of light
    To walk alone up high and right
    It feels more pleasant and calm today
    I hate the darkness where you stay

    I feel a sense of tranquility
    Angels surrounded with serenity
    As I’ve risen from my grave
    I couldn’t be more happier and brave
