when i see my past pain in your tears
now come here,
and cry how much ever you want.
we don’t want the neighbors to know
how much worse we are doing than them.
trust me dear,
it does no one good
if you go around with these puffed eyes
and cracking voice.
you know, these days
it is not wise to act out frustrations
you never know who is idle enough to observe us
and label us as another example
of a failed generation,
write an article on
how luxury has spoiled these children,
that we are just a bunch of aimless attention seeking
humans who refuse to grow up,
that we are weak to indulge in something so petty.
they will hand you the list of people who are doing worse
(i have plenty of those stuffed in drawers,
just in case if you are curious to know what it says)
i know nothing is right
but it will be.
we will make it right
but till then
do not wait for kindness,
do not expect understanding.
if you get them be grateful,
but don’t wait for someone to come and pick you up.
we will make through this
not because we are strong enough to face all this
but because this is not the first time
our lives are wrecked by these unacknowledged pains.
like always we will break ourselves
and grow smaller in our attempts to grow up.
Too good…again I could totally relate with this..
Really glad to know that 🙂
Thank you so much 😀
Great image – is it your work?
No, I am not that good at drawing 😦
I saw it online somewhere, loved it when I saw it. It is a really beautiful work though.
(Almost all images on my blog are not mine, but something I end up finding online 🙂 )
Ah yes, the feeling of shame in the one who is struggling to show empathy, but is at least honest in their lack, Very real.
Thank you 🙂
