My disability and miserable life

I m not angry with you, life
simply astonish
of how I ve been demolish
simply baffled
of your innocent questions

never thought that in order to live
I would need to hold onto pain
never thought that life would extract
price for every smile 
now whenever I smile 
it seems like that these lips are pursued in dept

today my eyes have weld up with tears
soon they ll burst forth I m sure
for how long can I hold
and pretend that everything s fine
why my life is so miserable 
I didn t even done a single crime
tomorrow who knows these sore eyes perhaps
will long for the sight of more
today my eyes as well as my soul and thoughts yearn
alas those droplets lost and my memories spurn
life!thus your course seems to be paved
but never a one to be dismayed

today again you ve reminded me of who I m
today again when I tried to take a step
you fall me further back
and with a greater force, reminding me that I m of course
I m not normal as I thought
others are better than me, I lack things while they don t 

but God never ask me, did He, 
He never ask me that will you be okay
He never saved me, He never protect me
every second every where everytime
somebody reminds me of how Different I m 
Their s not a single time in my life when I felt like I m fine

I ve long forgotten how happiness feels like
Their s not even a single childhood memory of mine
In which I ve smiled
every second my thoughts fight
so that even for a second I can forget who I m 
and live a normal life
but their s not even a single day when I m not reminded
that I m different that they are better
although I never argue, I believe them
but they never stop  reminding it
not even for a single bit

no one likes me, I m favorite of no one
just because I lack something of which I 
never have a choice
people often laugh when I ask a question in a class
they don t know it but it break my heart
just like a shattered glass

people think that If I don t cry, I m a monster
but somebdoy tell them that I m also a human
I also cry, every night, alone in my bed
wishing that instead of such life I would have prefered death
I m not deaf if I choose not to answer you
I always listen what you said about me
but I always try to be quiet

    Oh Faraz, your pen bleeds your pain. That's what the pen is for. High school can be so awful dear, rest assured you are normal, just not average, no poet is :) Besides, who really wants to be average? Hugs to you dear poet xomo!
