These soft hardened eyes you see here
They have been through countless battles
War after war
They have aged.
Time has taken them in its embrace
For all you see when you look in them
Are bittersweet memories of the good times
And all the hardships which have given wisdom
But through all this
What you will love the most
As each tear falls from them
Is the courage they hold.
To forth and beyond
All the pain they have seen
To grow and humble
With the immense bravery they have found.
– Shankarsai Kashyap
The seeping red liquid
Oozes out of your wound
A bullet to the heart
You stare up and wonder
Why this had to happen.
A peaceful life, all yours and true
Ruined, slowly and deeply
By the insanity of love.
As you think of the good times
The joy, the peace, the happiness
Your life slowly slips away
Darker and darker you feel.
The touch of cold, welling up
Losing sensation bit by bit
As the hot blood escapes
The only pain you feel
Is the one of betrayal.
How you had given all you had
Lost your life and interests
For someone with another agenda.
You dream of the good,
The great many things you have done
As one soul in the world
Who has given much more.
With all the pain
You find it in your bleeding shot heart
To forgive the one who put you here.
To leave this life, with no regrets
Or rage or hatred
For in the end, the blood you see
Is just another lesson
That others have their own lives too.
The beauty of the soul
For we all are not one
With cosmic entities
Each with their own speciality
Amazing people indeed.
The precision of the soul
For every choice defines us
Moulds, creates, shapes
Every joy or pain we go through.
The simplicity of the soul
For it does not need anything
From love, to life to objects
It asks for nothing at all.
A free spirit with no needs.
The power of the soul
It can destroy create or reap
The benefits and truth of life
To build and deconstruct
The mightiest of truths
For it is unlimited.
The love of the soul
Is tremendous, magnificently enormous
Which has some to share with all
For the soul is the soul
No conflict or disinterest.
Rage or hate all absent
For all it has is love.
When the Devil does good
And God burns the world
When Hell out pours with the souls of the damned
When the purest of hearts dilute
And the darkest of souls save lives
The world shall know the true meaning of life
To live yet not to feel alive
To die with the most outrageous pain
The confinements of the mind will shatter
Be free and set forth
Dwell to the deepest of levels
To live is to enjoy.
Create a Legacy, go down in History
The daylight gives a will for life
The moonlight gives a will for dreams
The peace of the universe upon you
To save or destroy and to live or die
It is up to you.
What if everything you once loved
What would you do
How would you react
The pain, the memories,
Would you grow, or would you die?
Lost in the deep of your mind
As your own past flashes before you
Everything you had once known
Gone. For all eternity.
The people you had loved
Who had saved you from your own mind
Vanish from your very sight
All you are left with
Is the knowledge of what you had.
What would you do?
Move on and live
A massive goal and immeasurable pain
Or would you give up
For there is nothing left to live for?
All that you had once called yours
The love you had within your grasp
Dead, vanished, gone, escaped
From your very life.
For you only learn it’s worth
When it truly is gone.
Treasure each person, each moment
And love what you have
Make the most of each day, each minute
So that you at least don’t regret
That you couldn’t tell them
That you loved and cared.
