The Reason to Live (English)

Shehjar e-magazine

Youth Section
"The Dynamos of progress"

The frustration begins here,

Leaving me in a void,

Left out in a deep abyss,

Wallowing in Miseries, under a cascade of tears.

The tombs and the graveyards;

My resting places beseech me.

These sepulchral thoughts engulf me,

As I think of the past, a destructed fortune.

This chaos that is created in my thoughts;

No wonder makes them go haywire,

The way this wind changes my life

Makes it look like a mere strife.

Yet, there are many reasons for me to live,

In this everchanging, poignant world,

Maybe the wetness of tears on my cheeks,

Or the dryness in feelings consoling Me.
