Life

Paradise

September 21, 2011

Paradiseif only we could float away,
up, up and away to a new place
and start all over again
leaving all this chaos and confusion behind;

every night i close my eyes and
try to forget the life as it is
meaningless, void, confused and
stuck in a race that no one wins;

me versus the world,
fighting for what is not worth fighting for,
through chaos, underneath a stormy cloud,
for happiness etched only in paper;

so little time, so much to do,
walking on a tightrope (with the devil waiting to grab you) that sways with each step,
its a battle of survival, a battle of wits
and a battle to find happiness;

so every night i close my eyes,
try to forget the life i am living
and drift off to a paradise,
a Paradise of dreams!

    Hi Praveen
    you are amazing… I enjoyed reading your poems… some things tells me you are missing something or are not happy… does not matter who you are and where you live always live your life with honesty and respect… if you give you will receive… remember in this world there is always someone greater or lesser then your self. do not wait for happiness to come along it is within you…

    I like your poems… it seems that you’ve written them by heart and feel each lines of it. May be something which is disturbing you in your life has made you write these, but remember you are the only one who can make yourself happy, don’t EXPECT anything in life, just go on doing your does… 🙂
