And there you were, trying to keep your head up above water whilst this world kept swallowing you in.

Trying to end the world’s slaughter when you were actually dying within.

Hate seeing you forgive the whole world but forgetting about yourself.

A Discarded material, as I see you isolated on that shelf.

You save everyone, but who saves you?

No beacon of hope, no rope to cling to.

They say you are stuck, “just evolve with the times!!”.

Then why is it that you suffer for your father’s crimes?

Seems like everyone is a judge in the world of the decrepit and depraved.

They put you in a box and your mind they enslaved.

Plagued by darkness, blinded by rage.

Anything beats being trapped in that cage.
– Moosa Mayet

    1. You’re a talented writer Lazarus. I’m always open to learning about different people and looking at things from different perspectives. I hope that we can learn from each other and be of benefit to each other in our respective journeys. There is no endeavor so great than one in which people mutually undertake to grow together. Lets spread awareness & showcase our talents as best we can. Good luck with your blog.

      Kindly notify me when you put up new/noteworthy posts – many get lost on my feed. I’d like to read your future work.

      1. You don’t know how honored i feel that you hold me in such high regards. I’m delighted to have come across your blog as i myself am always keen to meet and learn from people with divergent ways of thinking.

        I certainly would not mind sharing your works. I think its actually a good thing you approached me with this idea, since it would help me maintain consistency posting on my blog (Its not always everyday that i have something original to post). Having the choice of re-blogging your posts would give me more possibilities and will certainly help both you and I in growing our blogs.

        As for notifications, i’d advice you subscribe to my e-mail list. I’ll do the same to make sure i get your future work
