Life's Pain

Times have changed and now we suffer
We suffer not because of pain
But of mere casualties that coincide with life
And we cry… we cry because it’s sane

Life is a leverage that is uncontrollable
A pull and push of good and bad
Life never seizes to amaze 
Eventually it will drive you mad…

Possibilities seem endless…
Yet we differ from the rest
Why should there’s be any different
Why should others take in less?

Pain should not be optional…
It should come to all those who’re weak
Who can’t seem to stand life as it is
Whose motives and goals seem bleak!

Why blame others for our own mistakes
Things happen because you let them…
Eventually you will fall on this path
Suffer the same faith over and over again…

Misery is only but a state of mind
A place where we go to think about our flaws
How it feels to be lonely…
Think about why death stalls…

And at the end of this road
We will eventually vanish, die
Only god know where we’ll be
But for the time being… we’re lonely but alive!
