The night falls,
out of the room I make my way,
carrying these heavy shoulders,
with teary eyes through the window,
across the pool, to the green lawn.
I lay down
to rest my back and stargaze.
Screaming my sorrows to the silence
My esteem, strength, faith and patience
are slowly fading away.
Part of me wishes to accept what
I was born for but each time I try
I feel that I am chasing a blind wish
which isn’t mine to chase.
Rather it is just a bridge
meant for me to cross.
My boarder to the other side!
The silence bleeds and screams continuously,
as I fail to see myself apart from the rest
of the world. It’s not just the world alone
but my genealogy as well.
My rivers are flooding,
as I lie admiring the luminous night sky.
Forcing myself to believe that,
I’m nothing more than a “spoiled brat”
with no future different from the rest
of the world, inherited!
