The Battle Never Won


'After crossing every obstacle in our life, we realize that true suffering lies ahead.'


I struggle, oh yes I do
I see sun shine over other lives
It helps others when it's my soul
that for light strives..

Darkness covers my eyes
tears forget to swim,
moon bothers not to appear
I cant blame him.

The twinkling stars run away
in search of light
the golden ball of fire
sweeps all from my side

And I am left alone,
with my life cold and dull
it has gone astray
God has put me in a lull

As time washes happy moments
grief is swept away too
the ball of fire seems
to have bid the world adieu

So my exam is finished
as i lie beneath the sun,
"That was quick", I said
"And small a battle to be won."

But alas! How wrong I was
I glanced at the setting sun.
Darkness drowned my smile
The battle had never begun.
