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.
