Home Life Survive

Survive

by Praveen Kumar

Looking out of the window,
as the sun slowly hides beneath the horizon,
the darkness creeps and crawls its way
upon the land;

i have been waiting for years,
haunted by memories,
going round and round,
in this vicious circle of life;Survive - Survive

as the music fades away,
i look around to spot any familiar faces,
it seems i am here all alone,
trying to make sense of this crazy thing called life;

how long does it take?
to solve this puzzle called life?
how much more longer,
if only i knew!

like a bird in a cage,
as i sit and stare into another day,
its getting harder and harder,
to be in control yet feel helpless;

yet, i have been waiting for years,
it made no sense,
maybe this is what my life is?

as i look into an unknown horizon,
the promise of a happy ending tempts me back,
and i choose to survive
to have another go at this thing called Life!

Title is inspired by the song “Survival” by the band Muse.

“Love is eternal”

love takes you where you want
to go, love shows you what you
have to give to that other person
who loves you as you are.

It has no boundaries that
it can’t break, love makes
you give all that you can
give.

Love is eternal,
Love is emotional
Love give you wings
that makes you say
and do all kinds of things
that you wouldn’t normally
do.
