My descent

I slowly begin my descent,
Down back to terra firma.
Lived in fame and glory,
For a time, I call mine.
I’m falling, down and fast.
The fall scares me not,
However.
It reminds me of all,
All the things I lost,
Of the things I gave up,
Of the dreams I shunned
Of people, I left.
The high of the flight
doesnt compare to
The scare of the fall.
Things change.
People move on.
Will you still be there?
I slowly begin my descent,
With hope and belief.
I slowly begin my descent,
Hoping to rise in your eyes.

I slowly begin my descent,

Down back to terra firma.

Lived in fame and glory,

For a time, I call mine.

I’m falling, down and fast.

The fall scares me not,

However.

It reminds me of all,

All the things I lost,

Of the things I gave up,

Of the dreams I shunned

Of people, I left.

The high of the flight

doesnt compare to

The scare of the fall.

Things change.

People move on.

Will you still be there?

I slowly begin my descent,

With hope and belief.

I slowly begin my descent,

Hoping to rise in your eyes.

PS: Sometimes, what you believe to be the heights are nothing but the peak of the loneliness. It is best to fall down, hard, maybe even break and begin all over again.

  1. yeah… sometimes it is better to re-start again! i m thinkin of doing a re-start myself re..

    good one.. work on it when u can and make it even more better! 🙂

    • Thanks a lot. What you planning to restart?

  2. i agree rashi…if required one should fall down to rise even higher in life and in our eyes and the eyes of those who love us..

    maybe the fall is the best at times…but i wonder isnt it difficult to give up dat height even though it is d peak of lonliness…and how often do we realise we are all alone there…and how often are there people who remain with us when we fall down…i wonder..

    i agree its a scary fall..but maybe it worth it

    • What is the most important thing is the reason why you do this. Do you do this because you expect some1 to be with you? Or bcas you realise that this isnt what you want!

  3. Sometimes we have to hit bottom before we can begin the climb again. Well done!

  4. so much truth in your words…

    • Thanks a lot. Im glad you agree 🙂

  5. Oh, to keep the gaze of a respected friend. Well done. Thanks for sharing this with OSI.
