Watch me as I die
Of hunger, thirst and lies
Of ignorance and indifference
And of rotten, shallow minds.

Watch me as I suffer
From hurt, strong and bitter,
From unwavering faith-
That all turns out better.

Watch me as I cry-
For souls lost, and dry
Of all who turned their backs
To love, joy and life!

Watch me as I walk away-
As I turn to stone
Inside, I harden- 
One day, when I’ll care no more. 

P.S. My 200th post on Maverick Misfit… Whew, that took a while! -G.

    Raj, And after all your three back-to-back comments including the smiley this comment begins with- it feels nice that you think so. Thank you 🙂


  7. Raj says:

    the smiley was regarding the innate sadness you seemed to have accepted as a part of you. but the way that sadness gives you a voice, that is what i find amazing.


  8. Guria says:

    Poetry is a way of purging the sadness. Oh, I fight that part of me tooth and nail.
