Life is not as rosy as it seems ,
Nor is it bright , like the sun beams ,
Difficult choices have to be made ,
The most unwanted things have to be said ,
Tears of Sorrow, pangs of Separation ,
Fear of the Unknown clinging in desperation ,
Sleepless nights , Hollow laughter ,
Not Courage left , just not enough to muster .
The Beloved must be forgotten ,
One must tread on a path , pale and rotten ,
Numerous hardships we must encounter ,
For long gone are the days of playful saunter ..
Forked are the Curious Crossroads of life ,
Crowded with trees of Sorrow , laden with spite ,
A Choice must be made , the one which is wise ,
For if gone wrong , It is too late to realise ,
Squeamish insides screaming for help ,
and a tortured tongue , with a painful yelp ,
Why does this happen ? Why does it stay ?
Why does happiness seem so far away ?
The answer to the above , can be just one ,
The One that can never ever be undone :
" Life is not as rosy as it seems...!!"
