LIFE'S A CHALLENGE

There comes a time when we walk away
From love or life that led us astray
All hope given up and relations broken
Deep within a pain awoken
From there on end it’s all a phase
Darkness surrounds us with its own grace
There is nothing left but bitter regret
To have lost it all and no reason to forget
The best of us have wandered away
The best of us have come to stay
Is there any meaning to this life we endure
Through a forceful suffering without a cure
To be left on our own to make it there
Having life play its hand which isn’t fair
To get acquainted to the feeling being lost
We wagered everything and thought not of the cost
Where have we come to, what have we become
Plain questions asked with no outcome
The best of us have wandered away
The best of us have come to stay
We give up and give in to our fears inside
It becomes life’s motto to which we abide
To us broken people ignoring is giving
This darkness and pain has become our living
The best of us have wandered away
The best of us have come to stay
