From beginning of time I’m walking a journey too long.
It was I, who fixed my belongings that were wrong.
Never had anything fed by a silver spoon,
Perseverance has been my greatest boon.
I walk a straight path, neither a right nor a left.
This is the rhythm that I’ve always kept.
Initially I struggled but now I sign pay cheques,
It’s a story full of glory. My path to the apex.
Cars, planes villas are all I got,
But my heart aches for something I have not.
When I started the journey I didn’t know,
That the apex can’t be shared with friends, family or the unknown.
In the empire of my solitude I live,
Where to even fall asleep I need a sedative.
What is it about the human touch?
I’ve been starving for an epoch and I need it very much.
Is it too late for me to start again?
To take a turn from my straight path,
To make a memory I’ll reminisce whenever I bath.
Is it too late to live the life I would had?
Smile to the faces that won’t ever be sad.
Then I know for sure my hollow life won’t be as bad.
Today, I see around from the top.
For I know it isn’t always about being pure,
But about finding your broken heart a permanent cure.

We crave for solitude but in solitude we crave for belonging..strange naa! We are never satisfied in our state.
