”Others speak, of how indifferent you are
But they know not what’s true
Or of what you’ve been through.
All they see is a cold exterior
Shun away the world, with an austere barrier.
But the deepest corners of your soul
Sing a story, that’s been left untold
For once, those barriers didnt exist
Buried within was a heart – umbrageous
A heart within which dwelled a flame
Like a glimmer of sunshine
Radiating warmth, enough to destroy the night
Shunning the shadows with light
For in glee, she took delight
But today this heart’s pieces
Lay strewn; desultorily, in this condemned house
Covered in layers of dirt and scars
Finding solace, only within walls
For now all you see
Is no fragile being
A cold exterior, it is
For the world need not know
Of the cold-hearted’s war”
Moments…those that keep us longing for more, making us reflect on them. Life’s moments, surprise us in many ways.
“You are not; what others see,
Nor are you what rumours speak,
Neither are you the colour of your skin,
Nor the accent you spew from your lips.
You maybe the person with outstretched arms,
The one with a warm embrace and a light heart.
Be not fooled by the books you carry,
Nor by the glance of onlookers as you pass by,
For what they fail to see is;
A fragile being none lesser than themselves,
Carrying her world within her heart.
For you are not; what you wear,
Neither are you the status you bear,
Nor the religion you follow,
And definitely not the language that you speak.
But yes you are; the head filled with dreams,
The love you notice, but everyone disagrees.
Let not your vision be shadowed by the rest,
For you are not what they choose to see,
But everything that’s unique.”
No one said that it would be easy,
but neither did anyone say how difficult
nor how long the process was about to be.
But Hope…keeps us alive.
In search of the ultimate happiness, we tend to neglect the beauty of the present.
