Guilt of a Lifetime

In the lonely night, I sit to think
Why it happens to me always
My eyes so tired,still without a blink
I sit in the dark with teary eyes

Mishappenings of my lifetime
Coming back to me as a slideshow
Pains, sorrows, disrespect time to time
As if watching a channel mega show

Why lord, these happenings to me
Didn't I care and love others?
Certainly I did, as I surrender to thee
Hooked up,like the notes of sitars

Why is it so hard for others to accept me
I am just me, iam not the reflection of them
I never overlooked their reflection on me
They always made me a fool out of them

I say to all, accept me as iam with my flaws
As I never judge you with your flaws
I can only judge you with your rainbows
As I know everyone has a deep rainbow

So, never take anything for granted
Once granted may be taken back for good
If your outer behavior is not counted.
Make sure always to be good.
