“We all are paying the price for the lives we are living and the price is preparation without preparation in our chosen works we are wasting ourselves as dust of fuel rather than being the fuel.”
Do you remember writing your first words of poetry? When was it? Please tell us more about it. Yeah it was in 2013 and the words were
“I don’t exist anymore
Might be a myth,
But the realities are sour
Rejuvenating all the kith
Raising treasures back to the show
Rust iron or fallen leave
All appear gold
Maybe I have to heave From the cold
Emerging for me is the new seed
Grading old dry
All i have to do is geed
Giving it a new try”
