Why is it that every time, the lights go off and i'm turned in for the night,
that tears slip out and my optimism is silenced.
Why is it that gloom, fear and sadness over-powers me and
i succumb to all the things i had promised myself id never let get to me?
Why is it that my calm and in-control attitude gets eclipsed
in the darkness of the night?
Why am i reduced to a weakling who is but a puppet in hands of fate?
Why is it that i cant let that smile remain plastered
on my face even when the lights are off and there is no-one to notice me.

when you are given those little joys
did you ever ask WHY me???

when you are blessed with wonderful people around
did you ever ask WHY me??

when you rose from the ashes
did you ever ask WHY can only I???

when you were happy and top of the world
did you ever ask WHY me??

when the rest of the world is happy for you
did yo ever ask WHY for me???


your post was a beauty as always...!!

pisku said...

Find a way to arrest the slide, something that brings u joy. Even trivial things like reading a comic, playing a prank, music.. something to hold on to.
For who knows, the first rays of dawn might be just about to break. Don't u want to be running to watch it!
