A fossil once fumbled

As the city noise dulls and muffles
I hope some time my cards will be fairly shuffled
don’t know if my ill fate is the reason why I grumble
only a hopeful heart can forever stay humble
it has the dreams, aspirations and plans to struggle
the weak and timid hearts will stay forever where they stumbled
being helpless and hopeless as the life crumbles
to the world your loudest scream for help sounds lesser than a mumble
time has preserved all my wounds and pains as a fossil once fumbled
as an useless, unknown thing lost in a jumble
lost in a world hungrier than the creatures of a wild jungle
life has confined me in this place as a fossil once fumbled
with pieces of my soul, dreams and emotions all tumbled

My life is best defined by number of not months but hurdles
being hit that many times the best I do is just bumble
firm or helpless like a rock in ocean being rubble
my voice, aches and cries have always been muffled
after all if you are not important, no one is ever troubled
the change of interaction to extinction of relations of couples
where the distances, disputes and disparity only make your beloved stubborn
never been proud yet I always fall, fail and burn
shifting to and fro ready to roll down the rock upon every turn
time has preserved all my wounds and pains as a fossil once fumbled
as an useless, unknown thing lost in a jumble
lost in a world hungrier than the creatures of a wild jungle
life has confined me in this place as a fossil once fumbled
with pieces of my soul, dreams and emotions all tumbled
