In a Life I Did Not Choose

By Mohammad Rashid

Oceans they leave marks
a journey up the hill
a fresh new start

a life I did not choose

But a soul I did not lose
a heart & mind set loose
from all your judgmental tools
I grew
I knew
a long journey ended
the scars, I still carry few
from those I thought I knew

in a life I did not choose

So thank you,
from heart breaks to damage
I resurrected through the carnage
from got your back
to stab your back
easy twist from back bone
to back stabber

in a life I did not choose

Bits and bits I gathered
kissed lips of yaggers
no sober nights meant more laughter
how can I win a war
when I keep getting my ass whopped every battle

in a life I did not choose

You were all in my head
when oceans drifted fast
left marks of a war
I thought we had
until u loosened up some screws
which Drove you mad
so screw you!
And that other one too
I never had a clue

in a life I did not choose

Look at me when I talk to you
I know you are me
and I am you!
