How To Save Yourself When The Night Is Harsh

By Sayali Parkar
1. The harsh night will
     Repeat the bitter words
     Of your father which 
     Burned your heart, but
     Remember, nothing burns
     Twice in this world, after
     Turning into ashes. You 
     Repeat your favorite words
     [ Beautiful, pure, maroon,
       Embers]
2.  It'll count your failures, but 
      You count all the blessings
      Loudly. [ Plants, sunlight, 
      Night sky, love ]
3.  It'll laugh at your scars, but 
      But remember they're fading
      And you aren't. 
4.  It'll try to be comfortable, 
     Sprawling on your couch, 
     But you invite art, the harsh
     Night will have to leave.
