There comes a time in life when you start asking questions to yourself and when you don't get an answer. You start to cry in front of the Lord, as you know only He, is the One who listens to you when everyone ignores you.

I have read somewhere and now, at this stage of life, I feel it's really true

"A man reaches real love (The Love of God) only after making the journey of virtual love (here I am quoting virtual love like the love between people)"

When a person gets tired of people who are not true to him, only then does the person desires to meet his God, the Almighty, the forgiver, the all-knowing, and the merciful.

Life often asks me a question,
Gaining something or losing something...

I ask a question to life,
Giving or taking something...
Life smiles and didn't answer my question

Today, I am sitting alone under the open sky
Oh Lord, tell me If I am living today
Or sighing?

They don't remember with whom I walked so long,
In the cold breeze, In the hot sun...

Why did those whom I support betray?
Who promised to go along
Why did they leave me alone in the midway?

Is this the continuation of life, my Lord?
No one holds the hand of the one who wants to go along,

Oh, Lord! I am alone, hold my hand tight,
Hide me somewhere I want to cry...

Hide me somewhere where no one can see me,
Take me out of here.

This world is not for me...
