Experience Does take a man long way.. but on the way... u find ppl like us....

i Know not to accept the fact, but the first question do really dwell in my mind almost all the time.

I read through the message and plant a seed,
but to feed it, i find no time or need.
Am i in the right frame of mind.
I am not and i want to cry..
out aloud and make everyone hear
that i am no different than a mere
weed in the bush..
that caters to nothing than its own desire.
