The Life



The life goes without any stops as an agreed contract
To end only on the day when the contract really ends
The pay for the contract is paid as death with a tomb
With cries and tears, relatives and children bid bye to us

The dreams of ours always make us channel out a way
The actual truth denies us the way to reach to the way
The time becomes too cruel to us making things go away
The eyes pretend to be blind since it has no other way
