“I can’t breathe”, is a revolution,
When will “I need someone” be?
Let them see, that you’re in pain,
But they won’t listen, when you’ll scream!
You’ve been screaming for a while now,
But is your voice shaking, or is it still strong & how?
You can give up now, they will mourn your absence,
You gave up yesterday, they didn’t care for your presence.
Can you breathe? I can’t sometimes.
It’s like someone is choking me for my invisible crimes!
My mind slips away from my control,
My thoughts give away everything I ever worked for.
Every face I meet shows itself,
Yet, I find it difficult to talk to even myself.
I wish I could share more, it shouldn’t be this hard,
But whenever I try, I feel like I am going too far.
It feels like I am bothering, annoying, irritating the one I am sharing to,
It feels embarrassing and I understand it becomes tough to get to.
But once I say that’s all in my head,
It feels like a giant elephant feet is off my chest.
I don’t care what you think anymore,
All I care that I found someone to listen to my roar.
It doesn’t mean I don’t feel dead inside,
But, I can at least breathe for a while.
Until the time, my mind decides to mess again,
I’ll live denying sorrow, hurt, hate & pain.
If ever I find myself in this loophole once more,
I will fight again & win my life to the core…..
I will breathe and smile in times of crisis,
I will pretend good, but feel the nemesis.
It’s okay though, don’t worry, I’ll be fine,
I’ve been fighting all along, I’ll keep fighting till the end of time….
