Quit Smoking

Rating: 3.5

I open my eyes and look around,
I think of the setting Sun.
Atlast its the truth that I've found.
But, neither life, nor death can I shun.

I lie helpless on my bed.
Still alive, but waiting to be dead.
tears of regret flood my cheeks.
One last chance, is all is all my life seeks.

The doctors just refuse to say,
If i would live through the day.
I wonder if it would be just to pray.
Coz, I am a smoker, and I smoked my life away.

I am broken inside,
But I try to be brave.
On me were the eyes of doom that spied,
As I puffed towards my grave.

My dear ones stand, by my side.
Tears of sorrow, they can't hide.
My mom sits, by my feet.
Wondering how long, will her son's heart beat.

I had smoked like a chimney -day and night,
Knowing not, that it wasn't right.
Now I wish, I hadn't seen this day,
I am a smoker, and I smoke my life away.

I had to pay the price.
As written in my fate.
Friend! Please heed my voice.
And quit it, before its too late.
