Poem: When life is a routine


By Faizan Nabi (Faiz)

We grow we grow we grow

We think we think we think


We reach a certain point

We sink we sink we sink

Lost with who we are

Confused with ourselves

Raised all the bars

Neglecting our own health

Striving for success

With no true love in sight

Dying for the  fame

Reflecting our own light

Blind to our own soul

We work like a machine

We are losing all control

When life becomes a routine.
