They thought she was asleep
Bored of class, all the work
They could not see within
They thought she was tired
A hectic day, schedule
They could not see through
The lost will, hopelessness
They thought she was overworked staying in for too long
They knew not her fear of world
The will to die, disappear
She probably had cold
A handkerchief in her hand
A wet pillow away from sight
Knew of her agony all through
Tired, separated, dejected
Her life, she felt, wasted
Not a person of same tongue
Not a hand to help up.
Walking down the road,
in pursuit of that goal
the cherished longing,
the golden dream
Along the way you try too hard
with a sun shining too bright
And then suddenly you feel tired
all energy, zeal sapped.
You wish the destination were nearer
that you reach before too late
with fatigue creeping in
the distance seeming even longer.
And somewhere you suddenly get sight
There! you found it right in front
Running wild, with all your heart
to find a mirage, mocking.
Broken hearts could not be seen
but they ache even more
They pain of losing out on dreams
the tests of time and tiredness.
A tear does not signify your weakness. It signifies your strength to get up and strive again after you have hit low.
It signifies you have learnt from what happened and are again on the path to make things work. A symbol that you are not stuck.
Though low, tears make the best telescopes to future, give one the best vision and they do release the bodily tension one feels.
Don’t feel shy of your emotions. Let them flow and be your strength.
