The Journey So Far

When I am gone, you won’t have much to worry about


You won’t have much heart-stress to stress about


You won’t have much wishes of death for me


You won’t have much elimination plans of various versions


In fact, the world might be a better place for you when I am gone




When I am gone, you will see the pages I have written on history walls


When I am gone, you might finally decide to start your life’s journey


When I am gone, may be my sorrow from my life will not be included in your book




In death I may not wish to live another day like Bond, James Bond


In death I may not wish to lie to the reality of my world


In death all witches will wish I never expose their evils


Your friends, family and even you backstabbers have spoken


They told you to stay away from me


They told you I blinded all your sight to the real world


And they said you should stay away from me so you could see clearly 

Even when I was no longer with you, they expressed the devils wishes


Let me safe you from the misery I might have caused you and let you gain your freedom




Suicide stage was one hard race I have won,


Frankly I feel I have so much to give to the world and,


Sadly I have no rout to exit myself from your existence,


As I still stay awake on this planet.
