A Jinxed Struggle?

The Silence of the Committed

In a Land where truth is silenced, And lies and dishonesty reign supreme; In societies where tax is licensed, For motherland whose future’s but grim. Across the streets painted corrupt-red, Where lurks shadowy evil with its ugly head; In the hi...

Farewell 2018

Moving on Despite…

The life I live is not of my own. I know not when He’ll put me down. My past has caused dear ones to frown, But my present proves that I have moved on. I know I am not the same guy, And that’s the blessed reason why I don’t regret for my dark p...
