Alive And Still Going
Author: SweetVenom


Rising from the hiatus after many years,
I still wonder where I’ m going to end,
These thoughts flick through my ‘iota’ brain,
That things a lot and works without a pain.

I had been on the run for too long,
Chasing life and being chased by life,
Tired with a sweaty mind, I long,
For a sunshine in my darkened life.

Searching, scrambling and screaming,
I plan to head towards the end of the world,
Travelling places has been my goal,
To wade off my miseries in the cold.

I came here with a mission to accomplish,
But as days passed the mission faded,
Losing all and everybody as I survived,
The fire in my heart tumbled.

Still having the so called ‘Go’,
I still wonder why I am here,
Looking out for a heart to take me,
To cuddle and fill me with warmth,
I roam around this mundane planet.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is the reflection of my thoughts. Got a bit inspired by Oasis's wonderwall and Greenday's Boulevard of Broken Dreams. Just started thinking a lot on where I should go and what I should do. Seems like this is one of the best ways to release my capped emotions.
