The Immortal Echo

Updated: Nov 18, 2023

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.
