The poem is below.


six years of loiter
running away from reality
crushed by the hand of fate
having felt the frustrations of life
where I found my heart broken
the future a mirage
my first kiss on valentines eve
cant recognize whether I did it right
takes me to where I found my heart broken

Am on my way
betrayed by life
walking blind convinced I can see
ridding on the edge of a knife
lonely here by the castle
alone in life bullied fears
I count on the friends I lost

one friend left to beg on the streets
one now a habitual thief
one a serious drug addict
one works down at the garbage
one beaten by life, now a harlot
one already a third wife
all whose dreams faded and quickly disappeared

cascading hurts fracture my heart
as I retrospect how optimistic we were
fighting like a pig, I try to hold on
with my shadow clinging on desperately
fighting formidable battles 
striving to get to the me I knew.
