Of oath and beyond

Because I never want it to tell
And you know why...
People think I am a fool
I just spoil my life with my whims

Because I don’t want to make my
Near ones anxious or morose

A life is not a smooth sailing sojourn 
And it is not easy to bear the sufferings
When you reveal
Possibilities are numbered sometimes

A journey to nowhere

You know now you have nothing to loose
When long treasured passions find
No soil to bloom
The living everyday is a mere habit
And you forget to call your friend

You know now you have to bear the burnt
Of your own decision
Nobody will come to touch your hand
The living every night is nothing but only self-criticism
And rolling the balls again towards the distant sand.
