Poem - "I do believe" - AnupR

They think that he's flying
when he's nose-diving ...
freefalling into the abyss

Don't know what he's thinking
And why that smile's on his face

When all plans have
gone for a toss
And everything's
as good as lost

When he's got nothing
to look forward to
And nothing
to hold on to

Seems
He's lost
His chance
His mind
and all hope too

Does he not have the strength to fight?
Why does he not care enough to try?
Why does he feel he's nearing the end?
Why does he continue to pretend?

No answers come and you are amazed
as you see him waving and smiling
at friends and passers-by
they all say - "what a great guy"
When all he's saying is - goodbye

But
As he hurtles towards the end
He hungers for a final glimpse of the sky
So he stops staring into the deep
Turns around and looks towards the Most High

"I do believe ...
Help thou mine unbelief"

I don't expect anyone to understand something that I myself am confused about ... :)

Hope. Optimism. Faith. A thin string of optimism is good enough to avoid that freefall. Nice one man! Keep it coming.

Yeah man, exams are fun...the occasional diarrhoea afflicting our lives.
