Pryaska Goorhoo ~ Two Poems

Time after time…



Year after year
Time slowly floats by,
Like mist that disappears
In a split second before the eye.

Do we cherish every moment
Or wonder what and why?
The way we spend our lives,
Is it true salvation or is it all just one big lie.

Dangerously harmless people,
A few in all die.
The rest just stare blankly
As time slowly floats by…

Cracks in pavement



Fight it out till the end.
Don’t whither, crumple or bend
You the only one who knows how strong you really are.
You can walk the distance, you can go far!
People do have flaws.
Before criticizing, stop for a minute and pause.
Lying, deceiving, cheating.
Judging, self-control, mistreating.
The world a better place?
Stop luring the people with your innocent face.
What really is the question?
To agree or disagree?
To be or not to be?
In reality, the world is not what it seems.
Shattered and broken are hopes and dreams.
Cures carried on your lips; don’t pretend!
Just fight it out till the end.
