What a waste

I was well and doing good 
Life’s full and heart’s contented 
No pang, no tinge of sadness 
And mind knew no worries 
I had been completely at peace 
Before I just lured by a fair fairy  
To the comforts of physical world 
And the dazzling beckons of luxury 
Nothing wrong in it to have desires 
To ride on clouds, to climb on cliffs
As I got this demon to have said 
But never warned about storms and hails 
And on the way I could be hit by blizzard 
My dreams could be dashed on ground 
Dawn can break into nightmares 
And nights can go without sleep 
A well settled life could be unsettled and restless 
And this happens most of the cases 
My case if would have been different 
How fortunate I would have been 
All the joys of life would have been under my feet 
Now I am down and my feet are up 
As on my dream flight I was struck 
By hails and blizzards and broken my wings 
Lying aimless with blinking eyes 
And with faded face thinking 
What a waste to have in life!
