The Search For Life


Sometimes I feel
What is this friendship all about?
Where every action ends in formality
And every word turns inside out
This friendship began as a search for life
Where I trusted you and your every breath
But how do I know in this cruel world
That I would come so near to my death

From the first day of our friendship
Your treatment for me has changed a lot
I always thought about your well being
But you persisted to understand me not
It was you, in whom I searched for life
But I was misled with the warmth in your breath
The more I felt myself to be lucky
The nearer I went to my death

You had started taking my friendship for granted
You never valued my single word
You only thought about yourself
And pretended as if you always heard
I cried throughout this search for life
I wish I recognized that breath
But one thing is sure that you would never understand
That how near you brought me to my death

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
