Random Poem:


Why does life exist
Beneath these walls of
The lives men lead
So destined to be
True, and yet
Creeps at every corner
As self perfection
Never ceases, never stops
whispering caresses of doubts
silky pleasures in our souls
as we struggle
and we kick
fighting failure, doubt
and then comes the air
filling sweet air of
forgiving virtue
which once again
revives us
and we see our true selves
alive, glistening from our triumphs and
the glories which
supercede our doubts
and then we live again
our do we die again?
And this is death’s forgiveness
A last chance in vain
And a pittance for our sins
Can it be true this lie
Which grows within me?
This doubt of life
Truly and sincerely
IS destiny a farce?
A lie of sorts
To keep our pain so sharp
At bay from any remorse?
Is it really worth my time
To live and let live?
To linger and live life?
