Emotions can be weird
At a moment they make you feel good
Next, they will make you feel all alone in the woods
You may try to catch them up in your way
Push hard to control and escape them away
But all your efforts can be in vain
Leaving you in the ultimate pain.
Things might hurt you hard
And sometimes shackles your brain and heart
For innumerable reasons,
And sometimes for no reason perhaps,
A plethora of emotions run into your soul
Mixing your thoughts in a feelings bowl.
You want to punish the oppressor and take revenge but also to forgive
But who is the oppressor—the society, your actions or your self-doubt?
In another set of dilemma
You want to ignore or just let it go
You want to take an action and give it an end
You want to find a solution but things don’t go well.
But hey, that’s okay to not feel well!
The turmoil of thoughts in your tired brain,
A state of mind that is not letting you cool
That’s enough to make you look like a absolute fool
So, you cry and cry to find solace
In the hope of acceptance at some place;
Every now and then, you are running fast
Faster than your breath
In the search of something that even you don’t know.
Struggling with self to prove to others that you are well,
Trying to portray what you are not and camouflage what you are!
In the process of creating a smokescreen,
You’ve forgotten to see the real screen.
So, what to do? The dilemma of pleasing others versus yourself
Is constantly hitting you on the head
Driving you crazy and making your vision hazy.
I would say, take a deep breath now!
For once, choose yourself and relax your nerves
In this race, you will catch pace
Destiny definitely has your place,
This thought may heal your heart
And like this, a new plethora of emotions start.
