Name of the game

Tried so hard to find the words
to fit in the line of what i thought
it tired my eyes bearing the huge efforts
so you could feel the struggle of what i sought

Stories in my mind i let them go
strewn into paper i laid them down
to grow a plot and let it flow
how rainbow colors became a crown

Poets of the old had their thoughts free
the younger minds write so differently
old and young talents sometimes agree
identical scenes are acted unusually

There are times some had it wrong
when thoughts are similar they feel it’s cloned
birth of mistrust they chose to defame
Envy is the name of the game …

The Fix

when you’re down
you always look up
but when you’re up
you feel all has no end

when you’re down
healing must come in
it takes considerable time
to get through the struggle

it maybe a slow or speedy process
in fixing one’s ruined self
no matter how strong or rich you are
you’ll pass through a painful and drained state

the power to eagerly overcome it
is measured by your conviction
the struggles willfully become your twin
trials will be beaten by your resolute strength

challenges are embedded in life
but they will ultimately pass away
if regaining one’s self will be a long process
there’s always an end and triumph will give you peace of mind…
