Pursuit of Life

Just some reflections (my own).

In the pursuit of this life eternal
many liberties I did forego
Was it all worth it, I so wonder
My conscience sadly so heavy grows.

It's the simple things I really miss
The alienation that I now abhor
to lose touch with one's foundations
when deposited on foreign shores

Was it wrong to want a better life?
In desperation was that decision made
while desires have long since abated
the shell survived, but the soul decayed

Now and then I will reminisce
wipe a tear, and hide the pain
From a corner dark, bring out memories
For brief moments, their services retained

The End
