The Path Of Life Of A Man - Poem by Quinn Lukman

In here I was born and raised
In summer I just relax with laze
I used to play around witout worry
But as time passes I started to feel sorry
The life I spend was just an illusion
The world I live is only a lie
I thought that every human is like my mother
But as I grow I noticed that many are like the devil

My friends taught me oppression
My teachers taught me what the world demands
And as I learn to adapt
I unlocked the secrets of this world
The place that I once was able to see as paradise
A fantasy that may be yet to explore
Was no more present in my heart

I am now an adult
With every step,
My survival keeps getting harder and harder
My family is gone, I am alone
The people I once thought as friends
Have left me to starve alone
I doesn't have enough money
I have tried but I failed in my study
Now I only have my low-payed job
I split the check by half for my living
One half is to fill my starving belly
And the other is for beer and a bed to let me sleep
twenty years have passed so fast

My condition is still the same,
I haven't got any raise
My age is getting older
My body is getting weaker
Now as I head to my workplace
My sight gradually gets fainter
It seems that my time is up

But with the last of my strength I was able to see
A kind soul trying to save me
Her intentions were pure,
She asked for no reward
Her only wish is to save a dying soul
I smiled one last time
I remembered my parents from the past
She acts just like them
A person I never expected to see the second time
A sight that I wish to see
Before the land decided to reclaim me
And my soul leave my earthly body.
