Everyday a war we wage

With destiny we fight

Forgive errors, control rage

Put together, over might

What’s meant to be, forever lost

Heartache filled with frost,

What’s meant to be…

What’s meant to be…

A daily war, a destiny costs.

You said that we had forever,

All for one, friends together,

Until that line you sever,

The only thing we had as tether

A silent tear I cry, I won’t ask why

To you my heart seems spry

A silent tear I cry…

A silent tear I cry…

And I won’t wave goodbye,

How did I forget that hearts break?

Faith in you only adds the pain,

 I see you, there is only an ache

We cannot go back, can’t begin again

I’ll stand alone, for all you have caused,

If only to think, you would have paused,

I’ll stand alone…

I’ll stand alone…

And know that heartache can’t be uncaused

I am taking my Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter

  15. Life can be tough … but it’s all right, we can jump back and move on … probably with different dreams, different friends, and more strength. A great poem, absolutely loved the ending line.

    1. True Raj, we can always move on while the old stands still. Probably derive more strength from letting go in such cases.

  16. Wow!! What a poignant poem. Somewhere deep down a silent tear I cry… So true!

    1. Thank You Rohan. It is always the case 🙂

  17. Yes, everyday is a war we wage, either within our own minds or worrying about the iniquities of life. A mind at turbulence with life’s unfairness, so beautifully essayed!
    Kala Ravi recently posted…#SpeakDecor – Chaise LongueMy Profile

    1. Thank You so much Kala. It is that isn’t it, our mind turbulent always and life is unfair always. And we as people always expect that things will remain exactly the same.

    1. Thank You Aditi, thank You so much 🙂

    1. Thank You Ruchi 🙂

  19. Beautifully composed Jai Maam!
    A daily war, a lifetime’s cost,
    from friendships lost to the hardships love caused.
    Such is the journey one must walk,
    always remembering,
    that even fire can kindle within the frost,
    of a cold brutal world that’s lost.

    Soumya recently posted…Action Replay: August 2016My Profile

    1. How much ever we may wish, none f us can undo things. I think people must realise that before acting. Also this might be the best compliment ever, because it comes from you 🙂

  26. the daily battle does seem to take a toll, but it’s one we have to wage. maybe it’s because each person has their own war, that we can only focus on our wars at times. there is faith in the other person to hold on, but we can’t really know how long or how hard their war is. unless they sever the cord than hold on, perhaps it’s possible to begin again if needed. I’d like to believe so, at least.

    1. True each has their own wars and they might be focusing on that. But that works both ways, and every action has some consequences. I don’t believe that things can be back exactly the same, and even if they do begin again equations change I think its normal and natural, because all of us grow from our experiences.

  27. That’s the character of a strong woman.
