That gloomy gleam in their eyes;
I cannot bear.
My heart explodes,
when it feels the vibes of despair.
The expectation in their eyes;
that which I cannot fulfill,
Drowns me in depths of sheer helplessness.
How do I make them believe in the goodness;
that which exists in inabundance though.
What do I do about the agony,
they ask to be taken away;
Their weary eyes display plea.
My chest explodes and my soul cracks.
I find no way to overcome the pain.
The one thing that keeps you going,
The wall of hope;
seems to crumble, goes everything in vain.
And, so, yes, I do bottle up.
Bottle up my emotions.
Pretending that I don't feel.
Pretending that it doesnt matter to me.
Pretending that I don't crave for the love that I know I cannot give back.
Start blocking every emotion one by one.
Pretend to stop feeling.
First, for the ones in despair;
Then, for myself eventually.
I find myself falling into the never ending tunnel of doubt.
But, surely, the Creator only tests you for how much you can bear.
For just when I'm about to lose it all,
A force pulls me up;
An answer to my prayer.
A feeling of relief;
More valuable than the whole world's treasuries.
Pulls me out of that neverending tunnel of doubt;
Far above and beyond the miseries.
I finally begin to start seeing a reason;
A purpose behind everything.
Although I start seeing it,
the Creator shows me only that much truth that I need to know.
And once there is a sense of realization;
I can feel a beautiful gift,
being upon me bestowed.
That which we all need.
That which we must all strive to attain.
That which is no less than the magical word-Hope.
That which not all realize the importance of.
That which actually keeps the world going.
The beauty of which is much more beyond human comprehension.
That which the Almighty Himself says is best for us.
And that is- PATIENCE.
