Confession

May 3, 2014

I am standing alone in the crowd,
Everyone said I should be proud,
They don't know the reality of my life,
But I know, I cannot say it aloud...

My journey had never been easy,
My destination was always blurred,
I, myself, was the destroyer of my dreams,
I was helpless, as my life was cursed,
I was a grain and wanted to be a sprout,
But I know, I cannot say it aloud...

My legs were saying, I cannot walk,
My eyes were tired; I could not see my destination,
I thought this was the end, my journey was over,
I could never be happy unlike my stupid imagination,
I was a thirsty earth, waiting for the black cloud,
But I know, I cannot say it aloud...
