Not In Vain

Long is the road I see
With no end, akin to the red sea
Very tired I am, my strength is failing me
Feet and arms, like they are not part of me
If this is the end, let it not be in vain
For very long time, I have endured the pain
Believing I was, that soon I will gain
All the suffering, I will not feel again
That drops of happiness, on me they will rain
If this is the end, let it not be in vain
Scary indeed, is what life has become
Like a wild beast, man have lost shame
Lives are lost, for others to have fame
World is torn apart, and dwellers do just blame
Sounds of agony and cries, everyday they are all the same
If this is the end, let it not be in vain
Stuck have I, in the middle of sadness
All the folks I knew, now they are helpless
The lines of mankind, are roaming soulless
All true believers, they are cold and hopeless
If this is the end, let it not be in vain
Blur my sight is getting, I can’t see the way
I survived yesterday, I don’t know if I will today
Weary traveler I am, could use a place to stay
Place to rest my spirit, before it fly away
If this is the end, let it not be in vain

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
