Life goes on...

As everyone says life goes on, rethink, rewind, retake Your life, behind the scenes of insipidity. i arose took my pen Scribbled, scrapped, written down. The heinous the frivolous for many, the criminal ground, Zero spot. Ah, alas! Where m i wasting, why i’m wasting My time, my life, my moments my glare. The unbillowing, stagnant, lethargic remnants Stowing the rags in a heap, making it cushion, the child Slept, on it. Moving ahead, large heap of black coal tar like water Sheltering the larger mass, surviving on that coal tar type, Dihydrogen oxide. The day stood, brightens the baby cried, mum relinquished The only source to feed her heart, her apple of the eye. He will change my fate, he will earn, he will extinguish my Hidden burns..... The man with the glowy, shiny, fully dazzling, glary torn Shirt over the black heavily mudded t-shirt inside. The days go by, life goes by, they go by, we go by, Who sets std. Comes stand, then again go by. Life goes by.                               …
