Often life knocks us down when we least expect it. A sense of betrayal smeared within us in who we are and want to be. However, as our ship’s captain, we must focus not on what’s happened but on what’s ahead.
“The Immortal Echo” by Jeevan Kumar Jose & Sebastian Xavier is a poem written with the aspiration to shine the light within us in those moments of despair. It reminds us that the universe has abundance in store there, and we must raise our chins and look ahead to the horizon.
Don’t know what to do
This time would come I never knew
Why is the world so mean because
Life was never how it seemed
Ain’t what I expected
Heartbroken, now I regret it
The turn I took seemed so wrong
This ain’t the place where I belong
I hope someday sometime life would be another kind
Just trying to be brave and bold
This ain’t the end of the world
I hope someday someplace that
I would be running in the race.
It’s not that I win or lose.
It matters in the choice I choose
Now is when I realize
What I lost was a great price
Ain’t time to look at the past
Because it’s gone forever, and it’s lost.
The future seems bright and strong
Opportunities will come along
This is just the inception of my story
Gonna go out there and make history.
This poem is available in paperback & ebook.
