Pushing me away

Pushing me away

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 (never ending) rain,
life it seems, is hell bent on ,
pushing me away to fight,
a battle i have grown weary of!

Title inspired by Linkin Park song – Pushing me away!
