Mourning

So all your strength was but another facade

Carefully put together to lure us in

We don’t allow ourselves to be fooled by you again

From here onwards, we choose our own path

Let me mourn you today

Tomorrow, there’ll be no place for you to stay.

Baby steps

Captivated by the thoughts of winning

He hastened towards the finishing line

Blinded to the miracles of running

He missed a grave point

The last sigh kisses life goodbye

A ripened fruit decays

Living is not racing

Winning is not finishing

Believe: Every seed shall see it’s fruit

But first learn to grow.
