For decades i have laid,
Parched in the moon and sun;
On the journey of experience overpaid,
Pitch upon pitch; Am the one…

The cruelty of life mostly seen,
Amidst the hoot and honk of the wheel;
The dying man’s eyes, thirsty and keen
Bothers none, left alone to deal…

The busy schedule of work and run
Breathing heavy with a deep sigh;
Shooting arrow, bereft of love but fun,
Cupid’s panache esteemed high….

Yet here i lay,
Not allowed to sway,
Meandering silently through the day,
Man’s degenerated and dilapidated grey…
