Can I Have Off Today?


Hey Life! It’s me..! Shall I introduce myself to you?

I guess I don’t need to do so…

Life! Who else can know me better than you?

I’m the one always being your puppet to play…

I’m the one in which, being a pain you stay!

Life! You broke my heart several times…

I was blank, had no crimes!

Did I blame you?

Life! You have taken away the hope from me,

Hope to live and to flee!

Did I blame you?

Life! You gave me stones when I asked for Peace…

Throughout that pain you left no ease!

Did I blame you?

Life! You have treated me as I don’t get hurt,

You left me in dark and dirt!

Did I blame you?

Life! I’m not asking for a permanent relief,

Coz you’ll not give me as I believe!

But Life! I need an off to be hard again,

Hard enough to bear the sufferings you let me go through

And to bear all the pain.

Dear Life,

Can I have off Today?
