Life’s heck

By- Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi

When I’m hungry, there isn’t any food left to eat;
When food is ready, I am not eating and just left over;
When I’m thirsty, there isn’t a mouthful of saliva;
When water’s plenty, I ditch dirty with feet steps;
When I have bicycle, I really don’t know how to ride;
When I need a bicycle, the bicycle isn’t fixing properly;
When I’m tired of standing, there isn’t a seat to sit on;
When I’m sitting on a seat, I usually give up for others;
When I think of walking, there are too muddy road;
Life’s isn’t beautiful, when you aren’t plan timely;
Life’s heck, when I turn back seeing through.

When I’m ready to dance, there isn’t a stag ready;
When stage’s ready set-go, I forget all the moves;
When I’m feeling bore, there isn’t any good day to start with;
When I feel like crying, there isn’t a tear rolling down;
When I’m crying, there isn’t any voice coming out noticing me;

When I feel love, there isn’t a one to hold to;
When I feel bad of, there is lot of faking goodness;
When I’m in a mood, there isn’t responding good situation;
When I’m lonely, there’s lot of egos echoing;
When I search for people, there isn’t anyone in helping me;
Living’s a worry, when you aren’t on time;
Life’s heck, when I turn back seeing through.

When I have plenty of money, there isn’t any to use;
When I need to buy, there isn’t a single penny left with me;
When I need make up kit, there isn’t any to search for;
When I need lipstick, there isn’t one, red I substitute;
When I need brow pencil, there isn’t one, black I substitute;
When I need combing, there isn’t time, hurry hair doing;
When my hair is ready, there isn’t a perfect one to comb;
When I’m too important activity, there isn’t enough time to bath;
When I’m fresh and ready, there isn’t any meeting holding;
Life isn’t sweet, when you aren’t holding sweeter;
Life’s heck, when I turn back seeing through;
