Handwriting on The Walls of Life

I wrote my thoughts with the ink of history
 on the walls of the streets of the listening world
 to be remembered in a legacy notes of my name

 Handwritings on the walls of life
 saying what today has to offer
 more louder than the voices of yesterday

 And laying foundations of words and lyrics
 to speak it better tomorrow
 thoughts of life

 that changes the gears of life
 creating wisdoms
 detached from the pool of ignorance

 Mending fences of civility
 with poetic creams of life
 lending hearts of wisdom

 From nations to nations
 with sweet knowledge
 tied to the loins of life

 Of many who reads the raves
 from the many frays of the treats
 that makes the hearts jump for life

 Spreading the thoughts of life
 like a bedsheet of love
 bridging all gaps of wants

 Of the caring moods of life
 to fill up the empty cups
 of comforts and despairs

 Whether to hate or to love
 in the very time past
 or to desire or despise

 In the hours of the present
 nor to reject or build up
 the realms of tomorrows story

 All falling within the laps of todays offers
 bringing out from my skull of schooling
 setting me out always like a dreamer

 To give out the best time can offer
 all that will relieve tomorrow of its pain
 and cause today's marriage of rememberance

 and of the cares of searching
 for the long missing gaps of poetic words
 and songs of ballads like genres

 All thoughtful thoughts
 that gives life a better name
 all these timeless writings

 From the ink of my heart
 that flows into rolls of legacy of honours
 of men that builds their generation

 all the writings..
 all the thoughts..
 poetic dreams of my time..

 clearing the wilderness of knowledge..
 from the confusions of the sleeping tomorrow..
 ways of poetic concepts flawless from new norms..

 ..developed for eternity
 ..writings that breathes with a large heart
 ..they refuses to die but only resurrects

 ..all meandering with ages in the open palms of life.
