As A Friend

Can you tell me as a friend?
Where life starts and world end
May I fail to catch glimpse of beauty?
Will not everyone laugh at me with pity?

Am I carried away by simple look?
Is it purely decoy and luring hook?
As fishes near the food and caught
Battle is lost without being fought

Why I only saw emerging fresh hope
Earnest desire with balanced walk on rope
Was that not open challenge to face?
Soon to fade out and out of race

Fine attempt to survive with glory and pride
Mo mixing of words and emotions to hide
Every angle has different stories to tell
How many may succeed with ends so well

Is it wrong to offer solace and stand as rock?
Morning alarm voice from creature like cock
Setting aside them as mere sign of weakness
Live pulse push to meet and feel oneness

Is the desire root cause of problem?
Can any nation survive without its emblem?
Is it not the earnest feeling and desire?
Will we not be failing to praise and admire?

Countless questions raging peaceful mind
Solution not in sight and answers never find
Can you not act wise and be so kind?
I shall promise to stay not as blind

I found you with His blessings and grace
Life would have been challenge and hurdles to face
Should have fallen out of grace to face ordeal
Wounds would have aggravated without hope to heal

I may end this by not saying good bye
You may not be seen as birds go and fly
It was earnest attempt and try
I will accept it as fate and never cry

    Can you tell me as a friend
    where life starts and world end
    as a friend i tell you life starts
    when you recognizes yourself

    its ends when you allow to ends
    it are very strong image poem that you sharing.......thank you 10+++
