05. Chasing Soul


I'm chasing for a life of simplicity.
My mind is looking for place.
This quest in my life i can't face.
I keep hunting and searching for prosperity.

What is this feeling i have now?
Like a sword of rolling thunder,
here in my heart i bother.
This insolent sadness i suffer.

In this pain of death harasses my soul.
Remove the mask of unfortunate goal.
This burning hope of mortal destiny.
Remote your soul in fatal defeat.

The worst of the earth ruin my faith
...take me in my dwelling place oh thee!
No doubt, this serenity shall be with me.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
