With every humane emotion, I’ve duly endured,
Along came a sensation, I hardly ever cured,
I struggled to capture happiness,
in a moment of conscious madness,
I failed and all I found,
Was hurt and pain and sadness,
my heart happily Seized and Lured.
With love I dreamt and rhymed and prayed it’s meant to stay,
Along came deprivation, scattering my hopes astray,
O Love, master of emotions,
Why do you always part,
Leaving only sorrow behind you,
Mercilessly Breaking my heart,
forcing my soul to lose its way .
With hope I fueled my senses, kept a serene and confident smile,
Along strolled despair with a face so bleak and vile,
I tried to fight it’s demons,
I swore I’d never give in,
But despair is a mighty conqueror,
That’s meant to fight and win,
that’s meant to stay for a while.
With life I Hoped and loved, laughed and hopelessly cried,
Along lurked death, that smiled each time I sighed,
“you can find love, and conquer deprivation,
You can find hope, and stamp out desperation,
You can be as lucky as some,
Who found faith and consolation ,
but how can you escape me, even if you tried”?
