Life toughness

Never have myself walk a smooth road

Time and time I scanvenge

A real house is not in my list

Stable place does not exist

Every minute shall I see?

The roughness of the sea


Marching onward was I facing a storm

Drowning in the river of sweat

Haven’t I found a comb?

To smoothen my body’s sweat

Aching my body with trying

Still I see an egg frying


The more I try, the more I hurt

Running fast still I stumble

Experiencing life is walking on dirt

Making myself humble

But what could I earn in life?

Since nothing could be strived.


Not a thing has been simple

What’s my purpose in life being?

Giving up life is on my dimple

Trying to examine the real me

Wondering if I can win the race

For starting was I to lose face.


Something holds me back

Determining myself never to lose

For we are born to this world

To go through disasters

Overcome a long desert run

Cause without pain, there is no gain.
