A delicate soul.
Crush it not with the miseries of the world.
Give it warmth, love, and attention.
It silently demands for a lot more.
Withering in pain, burning brighter than the flames
It steers clear from emotions.
‘cos it knows it will be drowned in them.
Jealousy pierces like a thousand knives.
So, it decides to turn into a stone.
With tears of ice in its eyes.
They watch over you with their keen and judgy eyes
Surrounded by dark red clouds emitting an aura of jealousy and envy
They look down upon you to make you feel worthless
You take a step back –
Fear in your eyes
You try to hide your pain
The pressure is pulling you down
You feel weak in your knees
You’re afraid of being consumed by the darkness once you blink your eyes
So, you look straight ahead with passion in your eyes
The fear slowly seems to fade away
The redness of the clouds begins to turn into a pale white light
Suddenly, you are struck by the lightning of enlightenment
Now, you feel whole and satiated.
A drop in an ocean
A tear of emotion
Isolation in commotion
A sign of devotion.
In search of an identity
In the enormity of the world
Struggle, passion, and dedication
Are merely but just words
Stand till you fall
Till you prove.
Two little souls out in the sun and sand
Joyous and so full of life.
Lost are they in their sweet land of dreams
Obscure and unfamiliar of the worldly miseries.
They play gleefully with a twinkle in their eyes
Laugh uncontrollably at the silliest of their crimes.
Involved are they so intensely in their games
They’ve failed to notice the dirt on their gear.
How you wish to be like them at times
Carefree and peaceful and true of their lives.
We lie, we hide
We worry about being wrong
We wrap the truth in a bed of lies
Avoid the realities of life.
We shatter with the truth
We try to escape
Seek easy paths
Alas, you are up for disappointment.
