Simply Surrender


proud of success

a weeping holllow life

leads me to death



lamenting the decades of unwanted strife

hereby i submit sad tale of my life

life in a womb of unbearable night

laying in a bag with no air n no light

pushed from the darkness in shock n in pain

network of fantansy, covered my brains....

simply surrender, no more ll i moan

lord i m fallen, plz take me home....

.................................................................................

................................................................................

laughed as a child in my relatives lap...

parental affection had strenghthened the trap..

i grew on n i studied every mudane event....

so proud n so learned




eager for money, a household n a wife

i took on the burden which strained me of life

time gone forever, how dearly it cost

my progress had halted, intolerable loss....

simply surrender, no more ll i moan

lord i m fallen, plz take me home.

..........................................................................

...........................................................................

bewildered n angered by worldly desires,

my selfisheness grew, it consumed me like fire

with greatest of pleasures turning into pain

those others are flourishing, threatens my gains

now i m humbled, diseased n downcast

my senses infeeble, enjoyment has passed

an old man with fever in constant distress

lord i m afraid....so afraid of my death.....

simply surrender.........no more ll i moan

lord i m fallen plz take me home.
