Tell Me

20191225_163322

tell me,

tell me of something,

something I don’t know

or you may be failed 

to make me understand.

how can there be

no words to describe

the hurt,

the pain,

weighted upon 

my shoulders?

yet, I say

with great pride

and gratitude

I am better,

stronger,

and wiser

amidst 

the hurt

and amidst 

the pain

We can all be stronger and better despite all the challenges and difficulties we are facing.
Our world is currently on a pandemic because of COVID 19; and aside from that, there are other pressing issues. The ongoing outbreaks of riots in some cities in the US which resulted in damage to properties and physical violence. Some news organizations worldwide have also reported that there is a significant increase in the occurrence of domestic abuse during the lockdown. These are just a few of the many issues/problems our world is currently trying to win. And not to forget our own personal struggles and battles too. It can be very overwhelming but I am confident we will all get through it.

Amidst Silence and Tears

You
Betrayed me
I wept and wailed
In agony
I could die a thousand deaths
And cursed a million times
Amidst silence and tears.

But I chose to simply cry
‘Till the tears run dry
And I could cry no more
I suffered in silence
I was quiet
But I was brave
Amidst silence and tears.

You
Can destroy me
But you can never bring me down
Nor topple my spirit
I am empowered
Amidst silence and tears.
