There are moments in each person’s life,
that decide the course of his happiness.
Defining moments- from where there’s no turning back.
Nobody told me it was difficult such,
That in every breath, you would want to give up.
On everything you have wanted to hold,
On yourself when there’s nothing left to behold.
Nobody told me it feels nothing at first.
While one steps onto the ruptured earth.
And just as gravity strikes afoot,
You feel the earth slipping away under your foot.
All efforts to soothe the restlessness pass in vain,
And nothing said or done ever placates the pain.
Nobody told me it’s going to be a deep hole,
Sinking once in which, one loses his soul.
With no sense of direction left, nor any goal,
I wish I had lost myself once and for all.
