Broken

Walking down the road,
in pursuit of that goal
the  cherished longing,
the golden dream

Along the way you try too hard
with a sun shining too bright
And then suddenly you feel tired
all energy, zeal sapped.

You wish the destination were nearer
that you reach before too late
with fatigue creeping in
the distance seeming even longer.

And somewhere you suddenly get sight
There! you found it right in front
Running wild, with all your heart
to find a mirage, mocking.

Broken hearts could not be seen
but they ache even more
They pain of losing out on dreams
the tests of time and tiredness.

So Necessary

An occasional tear, a rare scuffle
A fight sometimes is necessary
to reach the zenith of your dreams
A fall sometimes is necessary.

When we get too comfortable
Or start taking things for granted
That new obstacle in our path
Is nothing else than necessary

When we fall into arrogance
Proud of our elligance
Stumbling over a stray rock
Is all so much necessary

Though we curse and abuse
Why shall things come in our way
But in all sunny weather
Rains are also necessary
