Memories of Farewell Songs

Memories of farewell songs

Pour down like gentle rain.

Wash off our sins and wrongs

And make us what we were again!

**

Be a bit more than frivolous nostalgia

Stuck in this vicissitude of life: –

We don’t have our visions clear

Gasping for breath in this hopeless strife!

**

Those days when we sang with no fear,

The iron resolves we wore as crowns-

Now like fallen kings in disarray so sheer,

We’re going down in leaps and bounds !

**

In the sea of broken glass

We stand bloodied to the core.

Doomed in the abyss of hell,

We’re so very far from shore.

**

And tears trickle down our eyes

As the songs hit our senses

The ones we sang while we bid goodbye

Hoping to make it big immense!

**

In the race to the pinnacle

We so lost our way!

What we set out to achieve

Never saw the light of the day!

**

And as we walk down the memory lane

We brush the dust from our suits so grey …

Still we raise a toast to our glory days again,

We live to fight another day!

Words of the Fallen …

I am the prisoner of my indolence.

I am the prisoner of my inability.

The stoic in me can never express.

I am the prisoner of my velleity!

 

I have been too timorous.

I have been too shy.

It haunts me thinking that,

That much I never really tried!

 

Perseverance is bliss!

Sadly I am oblivious to it!

The dreamer in me is paralyzed:-

Giving up at the first sign of defeat!

 

Shelved in my own grave,

I am the dead man alive!

Wills eroded, emotions dried up;

I am a lost soul, grayed and naive!
