Isolating my self from the outer world
I wanted to figure out what was wrong
Disaster upon disaster
Things were falling apart
I decided to ask myself
That could give hints to where the attacks came from
What wrong step did I take?
In which endeavor was I fake?
All my struggles were going down the drain
What was I to expect from fate?
I couldn’t figure out where I made mistakes
All my deeds were clear and straight
Why is my world turning its back on me?
Knowing fully well I have nowhere to flee
Honesty was my watch word
Integrity was a part of me
My discipline was well instilled
And when you talk of hardwork, I gave all of it
Attaining success was not a wrong decision
I could clearly account for all my actions
With sincerity and hope I toiled
But now I’m left with none
Why was life playing games with me?
My attitudes towards it were not to kill
Why was the universe in support of my pain?
I had laid a good foundation to stay
I can’t help but wonder
Why my life is going down the drain?
I seek answers to all my questions
And till I get one, I won’t give up and feel shut out.
