Pushing me away

walking home on a sunday evening
thinking about life
thinking about myself
i get stuck in a sudden downpour

without nowhere to hide
nowhere to run
i walk along
unmindful of the pouring rain

seeing an empty bus stand
i walk my way towards it
to escape the rain
walking my way towards it
i suddenly slip and fall down

gathering myself once again
i look up to see the
once empty stand
now brimming with life

with my journey just started
i move on to the next shade
the moment i step in
i am pushed back into the rain

clueless, wondering why
i try to get an answer
but to no avail
stepping back into the rain

i move on once again
slowly making my way
i suddenly find myself
dragged into another shade

assuming my search is over
i slowly settle myself in
only to be ensnared
and thrown back into the rain

blaming myself for everything
i continue to walk in this (neverending) rain
life it seems, is hell bent on
pushing me away to fight
a battle i have grown weary of!

note: multiple meanings exist.
title inspired by Linkin Park song – Pushing me away!
