I just woke up one day,
Feeling not so great.
The sun was shining brightly,
And people around me lovely.
Yet I felt a piercing pain,
Deep in my heart,
Clouds of gloom took me in,
And trapped me in its maze.
My heart suddenly felt heavy,
Icy chills gripped me.
“What’s wrong?,” mommy asked me.
I’m said, “I’m sad, hug me.”
She had a worried look on her face,
“What happened,” she asked again and again.
I didn’t know what to say.
I didn’t know why I was in pain.
So, I gave her a vibrant smile,
And told, “I love you mommy.”
Then, locked myself in the room,
And drowned in a pool of gloom.
My best-friend dropped by to say, “Hi.”
I told her I was sad and lonely.
She tried so hard to cheer me,
Even threw me a party.
All the happy people around,
Just made me wanna frown.
But I couldn’t let her down.
So, I faked a happy smile.
I danced, laughed, even joked,
With a heavy, stone-cold heart.
Why are you sad?
Why are you lonely?
I asked myself again and again.
Only answer was the numbing pain.
So, I made it a daily ritual,
To look into the mirror,
Five minutes of smile practice,
To get through another day.
Just didn’t have the strength,
To explain what I felt.
