Setting Free.... [Poem]





My own written poem. I wrote it as i was feeling a little low.
I wrote this on 10th September, 2010 when i am 17 yrs old.

I was walking alone in the park,
The atmosphere was dull and dark.
Although the sun was blazing in the sky,
I was blinded by the tears in my eyes.

I was trying to stop my tears,
Was there anyone for my care?
Even the flowers couldn’t soothe me down,
They couldn’t erase the overstretched frown.

The sun hid behind the clouds,
I could hear my heart’s howl.
Everything seemed so dumb,
As I was feeling totally numb.

The winds tried to caress my soul,
But it couldn’t stitch my heart’s hole.
It tried to embrace me in their arms,
But it couldn’t erase the lines from my palm.

Life snatches all my happiness,
And in return gives me sadness.
It fills my heart with utter pain,
My soul was dirty with stains.

Everyone I met, just used me,
Then after use, abandoned me.
I was just a call girl for them,
Meant to provide pleasure to men.

My life is hell and I hate it to the core,
There are waves but none reaches the shore.
No one knows what I have been through,
I hate the thing I have to do.

Don’t I possess any feelings?
Can time do all the healings?
Didn’t I deserve a normal life?
To have kids and be someone’s wife?

Why am I treated as dirt,
Why does everyone just hurts?
I just desperately want to die,
And free myself from every lie.

Female infanticide is better than this,
Where every night you are kissed.
Why can’t someone seriously love me?
From this hell, set me free?

My entire life is a big question mark,
Where there is no light and only dark.
I always desperately strive,
To be able to lead a normal life.

Yesterday night was too much for me,
Now I want to set myself free.
Everyday I have cried,
Every night has given me fright.

Today I am going to set my soul free,
I know that it won’t pain me.
I just have to jump down the cliff,
Death is better than the life I live.
