CAN YOU SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE?

By-Gyapti Jain

 

It's like a cage and I keep flapping my wings

They are broken of trying

I tear down myself apart every night

To see if there's a morning sunlight

I close my eyes and I hope to die

There's no one there just my sorrow inside

I share my place with loneliness

No one to hold and no one to crave

The world just puts me down

I try to get up but I'm paralysed

I look at you in my lost beliefs

I look at you in my tears and griefs

I look at you in my dead dreams

I look at you in my fierce grims

Can you show me how to live

Give me voice so I can scream

My soul is tired of hearing to me

Can you tell the world I can't breathe.
