The day I drowned in my own tears


Very young,
I braced my faith.
Plucking thorns out if it,
Eluding track of dates.
Gradually hope faded,
Happiness became a forlorn song.
I hummed lyrics with a smile,
But I couldn't make it last for long.
I knew, my soul was scarred,
It kept on tearing,
It kept nagging with pain.
Even pleaded me,
To stop hurting it again and again.
When we both couldn't sync,
I came one-to-one with my biggest fear.
The day I lost everything,
The day I drowned in my own tears.

Pin It Now!

  14. Sometimes when we feel everything is lost, all it takes is a second of letting things down and throwing them away and getting back to being normal. But easier said than done.

  26. Why are you so sad? What scarred your soul that you sank into your own tears? There is a contrast which is somehow not going with the poem - if your souls is scarred it is by someone else, something else - not your fault and you shouldn't sink into your own tears - which if you do means you repent what you did.

    Just my thoughts.
