Poem; Life


My late Mother used to say “A life passes by too quickly.”

Yet some of us attempted to end it sooner.

It is not a sign of weakness,

quite the opposite

We tried to end it as living became unbearable

Too painful.

We had no more strength to fight the demons

Piercing anxiety lived within.

Nothing seemed to help

Until the day that I promised my mother and family

That I will let nature run its course.

Not interfere with it.


Peace and serenity

  1. Hey,

    I’m working on my debut poetry book and preparing a mailing list. Would you like me to add your e-mail address please? If so, can you share it with me?

    I don’t plan to do it like hard core promotion, I will be e-mailing you privately not through any software.

    I will just inform you when it’s available and when there is some huge fluctuation in price (sale etc.), as on WordPress reader, posts get lost in stampede.

    I won’t be mailing you more than 4 to 5 times a year, and that’s max. Promise!

    And if you want it to share it privately you can do that through contact form on my blog.

    Thank you 🙂
