The Voice of a Palpitating soul

Dear penguin bearers, Your fears are my letters. Your attacks are my words. Your choking is my ink. Your voice is my language. Your trembling is the content of my story. Your agony is the magnitude of my magnum opus. I read your feelings I feel your shivers I write your soliloquies I sing your monologues We all are trying to survive in the same reign of terror We are not alone in this terrific strive All we reflect is a powerful personality in the mirror. It's tough to lead a normal life as our wings are cut with a sharp knife But we don't cease to fly For, we know our spirits are high We are God's favorite children He wants us to shine like one in a million He is always there to pat our back and soothe our spines He is constantly teaching us to read between the lines So, let's make our shoulders strong Let's not bend for anything wrong Realise that there is an army of palpitating souls around us Let's spread the rosiness of the inspiring story hidden in each one of us. With love and reverence, A fellow penguin bearer. Note : The poem addresses the "Penguin bearers". The phrase "Penguin bearers" refers to the victims of mental illnesses like Panic and anxiety disorders,depression etc.
