Zendagi Migzara ...

I often go through such moments in my life -
where I turn and look into the face of life 
I try to view an image of what I think is me
and all I see is a damsel - 
with hope as her shield for the dark nights
armed with determination so fierce 
to survive the turbulences in life
and courage to stand for the right
focussed to reach her destination in sight
with beliefs that reflect her sense of pride

And then sudden lava like eruptions that jolt time and space
awaken me to look beyond the reflections of my image
they make me wear out the masks I had worn to hide the real me
to hide my pain, to silence myself when I so much wanted to scream

If forgetting my past was as easy as smiling, I would never cry
I would have moved on with my life and not pondered
over the question marks hanging over my head, nor
would there would I’ve this thought "Why am I alive, I wish I was dead."

If overcoming griefs was as easy as breathing, I would never fear
every rising sun would bring a smile on my face and not a tear
stringing together the broken pieces of my heart, I would look ahead
with all the tears gone, my eyes would’ve no longer looked lost and dead

Be it happiness or sadness, a tear has always been there in my eye
b'coz I still remember the day when shattering time left me high and dry
When I saw for the very first time, a mirage of joy, I just cried
When my dad left me alone, tears rolled out and I then died

Zendagi Migzara a.k.a Life Goes On, is what I am told...
In every human life
there are moments high and low
emotions from every corner, continue to grow
don’t lose heart and go away
to destinations unknown and paths astray
for Life Goes on ...
Is the only L E S S O N all the way.
