Deep down inside, stirs a residual sorrow
Amidst all things bright, the dark part
Negativity breeds anxieties of the morrow
These are gloomy places in the heart
Without rains, where teardrops start!
Sore, turn these painful abscesses
Tattering confidence by daily wear and tear
Depression building in chronic recesses
Faith and dignity, a minimum thread bare
Finding courage and strength to overcome, is rare.
Shattered dreams, a source of trauma
Multitude of matters lacking fulfillment
Flowing lively stream of joy, paused in a coma
Deserting the mind, all thoughts prudent
Only the true calling of Love, could make an amendment.
All one needs is a soul mate's affirmation of care
Shackles of mental bondage to break free
To overlook everything that's been unfair
Lock and secure the dark dungeons with a single key
Wipe off memories, throw the key deep down in the sea!
