What is wrong with me

That I crave to smile again 

A smile that touches my eyes 

A smile that isn’t a masquerade


That I want to sleep 

Peacefully on my mother’s lap

Her soothing voice a remedy 

To all my childish problems that children have. 

What is wrong with me

If I want to breathe again 

Inhale the fresh, crisp air 

Exhale the misery and the pain

Take me back in time 

When I was made to believe

That life will forever be simple 

And that people never leave 

All that is wrong with me

Is that I have a weak heart 

I’ve come a long way in life 

A race that I can’t restart. 




Time staring me right in the eye, my entire life floating in front of me like a terrifying yet enchanting nightmare. There was good and bad, happiness and gloom and everything else that makes life a beautiful conundrum. Though I could make changes, stop time and alter it, I did nothing. I just stood there- wonderstruck, amused at how far I’ve come, bemused that there’s a long way to go.
