In My Own Hands (The End of the Rainbow)

This one is a collaboration so I can’t & won’t dare take credit for it alone it’s a team work & it remains so.
I’d like to thank my friend “R” for agreeing to share the burden of sorting out the mess, madness & writing half of it (everything in italic ;)).
It’s a story in the form of a poem that we hope may bestow some logic , reason & hope in our otherwise crazy day to day lives & may be yours 😉
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Of Sorrow & trials
My life seems over
Spending every waking moment
Searching for a four leaf clover
++++++++++
More trouble
Than it’s worth
It’s either death
Or birth
Oh aye
No pot o’ gold for you
+++++++++++++
A quest that has taken my whole
Yet I’m nowhere near
Reaching my goal
+++++++++++++++++++
You see me as a child
A trickster sinister me
Only a fool plays the wild
Sea of lies… let it be
Into thin air I vanish
++++++++++++++++
Cynical is indeed fate
Always find what we want
A second too late
I journey to the end of the rainbow
Where I find a pot of gold
Face to face with its owner
Who seems like me
A loner
+++++++++++++++++
Three wishes
Heavier than gold
Don’t obsess
In time they unfold
+++++++++++++++++
What I want
Isn’t sold
A price that is
Heavier than gold
It shines much less
But when you are old
It keeps you warm
Through all the cold
++++++++++++++++++++
Grant you three wishes
But try to catch me not
Luck is never
Served on dishes,
Following a rainbow,
Or eyeing a pot

++++++++++++++++++

Promises made only
Only to be broken
For what are promises ?
But words spoken
Vanish you will
In a blink of an eye
Creature of myth
I come not to play

+++++++++++++++++

No one can lead life on their own
None of us deserves to be alone
U knew I’m a loner, it’s true
I grant u the wish, off let me go

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

A wish you say?
If magic be true
Then so is my pain
For nothing lasts forever
I’ve seen it with my eyes
Even your magic one day will die

++++++++++++++++++++++

Change… Change…

An unbearable life that on one’s own
No one deserves to lead it all alone

U knew I’m a loner, it’s true

I grant you the wish, off let me go

No pot o’ gold can compensate
You met me now and it is your fate

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

So tell me how to find
The four leaf clover
It grants not three
But four wishes moreover

++++++++++++++++++++++++

The obsession is not over
For a damned four leaf clover
If you dare and still do crave
Know it’s only for the brave
Those who can let go
Of pain

And the  past they throw

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Let go ?
A past to throw?
Who am I or you?
Without what we’ve been through?

+++++++++++++++++++++++

Only faith in love and hope
Can pull the clover on a rope
But those who fret, scream and cry
In their pain they live and die

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

I’ll take my  chance with the fourth
I’ll bet it all on “luck”
For if I have to lose me to find that damn clover
I’d rather stay me & die as a loner

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hold on to the past
And you see no future
The hurt, pain and grudge
Your present they will smudge
It’s all up to you
To seek or let go
