Sleepless nights and a clouded mind,
Memories of my chequered past
Stealing the solace off my eyes;
All the pain and all the suffering,
Running through my skin
Stimulating every sense of sadness;
What I did then ,does it define me ?
What I am now , does it untie me of my sins ?
I try to let go
I try to forget;
But my innate human essence, Won’t let me!
After all I am a man, mortal and pathetic
