When I Meet Him


i traveled one day, to where
not even mind can comprehend
nor thoughts can understand
to a land of no return
not even relatives can save me
Hades they call it
i lust on the road in which i walked
deceitfulness was the countenance of my face
treachery, my thoughts was a captive
enviousness ruled my heart
and lust of the flesh lies in my eye
many ideas i have discarded
many time have i wasted
i feel sorry for myself
when i see folks ahead of me
considered that as fate
and always down pressed
frustrated i became
glass of drunkenness, never
depart from my lips
smoking was the order of the day
thinking that was the only way
darkness over shadowed me
ruin my life and broke the my pillars of hope
bind me in sickness where even scientist can't reveal
just like a leaf sooner to fall apart
i seek to take my life
under an almond tree
just before my actions
a voice of echo invaded my ear
stop! it was a lady
comforted me in her arms
wiped my tears and told me
