I Remember

I remember waking up with expectations

Cautiously avoiding distractions

I remember having a promise to fulfill

Trying to measure up to fit the bill


I remember those blissful moments of the day

Smartly working to keep failure at bay

I remember not having two pennies to rub together

Struggling to get out of the mess one way or another


I remember those lustful romantic evenings

Beatified with intimate flings

I remember it was hard for me to let go

The pleasure of seeing you again, I had to forgo


I remember miserable nights of nightmares

Fighting with unknown forces in warfares

I remember seeing fog of death

Trying to snatch away my breath


I remember I was created to do good works

Making the world better for the young folks

I remember I made a pledge

To remain a sage
