I was lost

I was lost

I was lost in the middle of a sea
I don’t know where to go

Like a ship I was sailing
For myself I was wailing

Though I was searching my destiny
To find the smile and end my agony

It was not cushy for me
Because I was lost in the middle of a sea

Thousand rays of hope were in my mind
Thinking about self,
Of which kind I am.

I was penned so hard
I was lagging behind,
Help me O’ Lord

Now I was praying on my knees
Because I was lost in the middle of a sea.

Tears were welling up of my eyes
Nobody was near to listen my cries

I found the truth,
Everyone dies-
And their soul tirelessly flies.

I found,
Not only me,
But we all were clogged up
In the middle of a sea!
In the middle of a sea!
