A young man, I was
When I kneeled down in front of the temple, head down, I paused.
Tears of blood I cried
For I was denied
The privilege of a smile
And pushed into exile.
I open my hands and looked up above
“Father, why must I suffer? Why can’t I find love?”
Desperate for a response I fell to the floor
And I crawled, I, an empty corpse.
The sky opened and a whisper from above come down
”Get up, my son, you are a warrior and warriors don’t kneel down,
Soon enough, you will know the meaning of all your suffering and why you needed to drown.”
I still cry tears of blood
But now I hold hope
Because the suffering will cleanse my soul
And soon enough, I will master self-control.

My blog is about all the emotions we feel as we go through this never ending journey called life. Some poems are sad (most of them) cause my life has been full of sadness but what can I say. So drop by and hope you like my emotions, thank you for reading. Stay amazing.
