Life


Life is so strange
Nothing stays the same
Everything change
But who to blame

Life is like a game
Where you have to lose
Before you can gain
To win you have to face the fearful rain

In Life.. They always say
Don't use your heart
Only use your brain

In life there is love
But the more is hate
No one decide
They all hesitate
And who knows the fate

The closest people you need go away
When you need them the most
You find them lost

Day after day
Days go by
People are born.. and other die

Year after year
No one understands
Nothing is clear
Nothing in our hearts except fear

Today you walk & talk
Tomorrow you lay in your grave
And nothing it gave
The money that you save
And no use of your gold
When it won't be sold

You have to be strong
Stop doing the wrong
And never lie
Be ready for your last goodbye

    He crumbled my paper from his office as he through my whole life in last minute, i fall down suddenly and faced my last minutes but as tears goes by every tear send me a helping one to save my die but suddenly my sadness full the whole world... dark brawn box no more life water or food, last 8 days was horrible as if they won't meet who die one day, , sorrow shadow world nothing have value around all need and want but as a stranger lived and died as stranger too i never appear on same mask or known from any body or have many faces... go in peace my dear father one day i will die and leave this body too, never search for me again.
