Silent Pain, Screaming
Surrounding me are flowers of all kinds,
Each unique in essence,
Each exquisite in fragrance
Each swaying to the pulls of the wind
To the best of their abilities
Since, each has been shaped and sculpted
To be that which it is even if it resembles
When they glance at me,
They turn their faces away
And their smiles turn into frowns
When all I seek is to be rooted by their side,
Being accepted for what I am!
A mere member of the same family and nothing else,
I walk over, each night when they sleep
To the clear pond and see reflecting back
My own reality;
I am a mere creeper, poisonous if eaten
Even if I mean no harm to anyone for
All I seek is to exist
And to be accepted for the way I have been created!
The tears that I drop into the pond are acidic
And I wish I had enough courage in me
To jump in its depth and meet with death
But each time, I get back on my steps
And try to sleep,
While waiting for a new dawn
Which would allow me to hide my
Agonising screaming silent pain
With an arrogant smile on my face!
After all, this world itself revolves while being false
And we all try our best to accept it
So, trying to find pure acceptance here
Is definitely like trying to find a rare pearl
Lost in a messy barn!
