Answer Zero

by pranabaxom

Asked only
A little of life
Life offered
Myriad temptations
Never realized
When I slipped
Following mirage
Lost orbit
Heart scarred
Accumulated experience
Bittersweet
Artificial smile
Hiding the pain
Moved forward
In life
No time
To take stock
Compromised principles
Hell’s fire
Constantly burns
Selfless fellow traveler
A rare find
Everyone has
Self interest
Difficult to be
Detached spectator
Responsibility warns
Restless time
Flies forward
Time travel
Reliving life
Impossible
Analysing results of
Give and take
Compromise
Fruitless
For remaining path
Gain and loss
Unsolvable puzzle
Answer zero
At the end
