AFTER ALL THE STRUGGLES THAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH, STILL LIVING EACH DAY LIKE A NEW BEGINNING IN MY LIFE. I AM NOT A POET OR A WRITE BY NATURE, BUT THOSE FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS THAT GO UNEXPRESSED, I WRITE DOWN IN THE FORM OF POETRY. ALL MY POEMS ARE ABOUT HARDCORE REALITY AND NOT JUST MY LIFE, BUT EVERY ORDINARY HUMAN BEING HAS TO GO THROUGH SUCH A PHASE AT SOME POINT. THIS IS MY LIFE, MY EXPERIENCES, MY FEELINGS, MY OWN WORDS.

The more I run away the more you follow me, the closer I come the further you go
Just as life seems to shine on me again , death becomes my shadow
What is it that follows me, what is it that I can’t see?
Maybe I am just looking for sunshine, the light that never shined on me
Was left on my own, to walk through these dark lonely roads
My soul seems to be imprisoned, but my life is narrated with the words that I wrote
Blindfolded with hope, that one day I will see light I continue to follow these empty paths
Started with Money, Addiction, Love- but now I’ve lost all that I once had
When will the day ever come when I am free to laugh again and live happily?
I forgot I have no one to share this happiness with ; no friends, no relatives and no family
I keep searching for light struggling through those dark days and lonely nights
“ Karma” has come back to haunt me- I want to run, but I have no place to hide
I can’t rest now even if I am wounded, in quest for destiny, this battle I continue to fight
Clueless about the future, I still wonder about, trying to find the meaning of my life
My life is nearing the end, as I can no longer bear these pains, I cry tears of blood
Karma attacks me like a huge tide, and I slowly begin to drown in this flood
I am tired, wounded and left alone, yet, until my last breath I haven’t accepted defeat
I am determined to fight my way through , even if I am drowning or I continue to bleed
I am still in search of happiness and hope for sunshine one day
I keep walking, and my journey continues, and slowly the dark clouds move away
And just as I think my journey is over, the doors open and I stand looking amazed
I see sunshine ahead of me now and all the darkness has been erased
I smile, believe I have found the meaning of my life and step ahead
I feel like all my sins have been forgiven, and my dark and lonely past I try to forget
And every time I step forward in search of light, Karma continues to follow
Just as life seems to shine on me again , death becomes my shadow
