Reversing The Pain

Soul Poetry



I didn't have value-

never will they say,

I was worthy of love

to those people

who ever mattered

those who cared enough

for me to know


it will  be

to end the pain

at last

even till my time's end

shall pass away

and the lonliness

that seeps my soul

the aching

I will perish

barren of hope


and so


I was not really

after all,



(Now read it backwards, line by line...)

If you read it word-by-word, well then it makes no sense. lol I edited that part.

I could sense the outcome better backward than forward....If only life were that way....
