       The Mirage of Life
Lost, tired , wired i am 
Dragging my foot to walk around
My foot is sulking into the ground 
By the sand dunes i am bound 
Victorious i am,
Because i am self crowned
Despite, i still keep walking 
Because , i still haven't got respite
Searching for it day and night
Searching for water all around,
Not a single drop to be found.
Suddenly i see what i was longing for,
I pound upon it,
only to find sand in my mouth.
Oops! I think i got it wrong ,
Its just a mile along the path
i now run as fast as i can 
"it's nearing " i tell my mind
As i near it it moves farther
It's a mirage, my destination
my destination is a mirage
The closer i get the farther it moves,
leaving me high n dry
and also does it help me try
makes me cry
Mirage of life it's all about
Keeps you moving all around...
