Life and experience

A PAGE FROM MY PRESENT DAY'S POETRY COMPILATION

Winter wind blows bitingly,

I have not had a wink of sleep,

Passed the night dreamily,

Now it is time to get up,

And get ready for the office....


For days I have longed for a friend,

To unwind after work and share the pastime,

The winter's hollering wind does not end,

This is how time keeps ticking...silently.


Tell the stars and the moon to disappear,

I have none to share my wounded tears,

All my friends have their own things to do,

All has changed with the passing of years.


Music once soothed my deeply hurt soul,

But now I cannot enjoy though it does dole,

Television, movies, I have no time for these,

My present days' agonies are on the increase.


Perhaps God Almighty will shower more mercy,

Forgive my sins and show clemency,

Now there is only HE who can help me fight it out,

Or this battle of my existence will be in doubt.
