wonderful world

i feel lost all the time
scared; petrified of the world
for it stares; piercing stares
to make me look down

and on it goes with happy lives
glossy finish and leather covers
never to find a speck of dust
while i bite it again and again

why must i be in a constant battle
without even a chance to prove
when the world moves just fine
with mediocrity abound

i feel lost all the time
angry; enraged at the world
for it laughs; petty laughs
to make me hurt myself

why, then?

we laugh we cry
we heave we sigh
when kids

a switch and
grown up litte shits
going precariously through
the motions of life

reality is much harsh
than our worst nightmares
for nightmares are courteous
enough to let you escape

but life, fucked up life
grabs you by the throat
flings you around until
handing over to sweet

42.195 and going


if success were easy
it would be common
to a fault, with no one
vying to attain it

that’s why so many of us
leave the journey
midway, when it seems
farther, unattainable

success is a slow jog
run breakneck, and give
up the dream, to ever
witness the joy

it’s a steady stream
that you get inch by inch
one foot ahead of
other, like a marathon


am i worthless now
to be discarded heartless
never to be remembered
ever again

what used to be confidence
is replaced with fear
all these eyes can see now
is failure

am i worthless now
with the world moving on
why would they have space
for news old

with these feet shaking
but with a mention of fate
seemingly agreeing
they can’t dance anymore

am i worthless now
for the truth is clear
what was once a legend
is lost forever
