Once upon a time

I was a daddy’s girl

Then I found a life partner

And daddy thought I didn’t need him anymore

Did he not know no one could love me as much?

Once upon a time

I was so pampered

Then I had my own little ones

And everyone thought I had enough love

Did they not know that love is never enough?

Once upon a time

I was a princess

Of a story I wrote in my mind

Then I faced the real life situations

Did I not know it is really tough?

Once upon a time

I believed in myself

Then I made some stupid mistakes

And I thought I learned my lessons

Did I not know life’s teachings are rough?

Once upon a time

I thought I found happiness

Then I understood the bitter truth

It’s not easy to stand up for yourself

Did I not know high is the cost of principles?

Once upon a time

There lived a girl

Who believed in goodness

Then she experienced people

Did she not know it always ends in despair?

Do you know the sound of drifting dreams…
Have you felt the pain of shattering heart?
Do you know how lonely it feels…
When you lose the only hope you had?
When that faith is snatched away by fate…
And all you do is watch it leave!
Have you wondered how you are stuck in the moment…
While life rushes by around you?
Do you hear the footsteps marching away…
And you can’t call them back?
Have you felt like a fool by being good…
While they had a great laugh at your candor?
Have you felt the absence of God…
When you thought at least He would stay?

I am at that lonely place now
I seek help but no one responds
I want to share how I feel
But no one wants to listen
So I go around pretending to be happy
I smile while I am crying within
I want someone to hug me and say it’s alright
But all I have is a cold endless night.

You ask me to share what I feel

But this pain my heart can’t reveal

May be I want to feel the pain

May be I wish to let it remain

Inside me, where it belongs

It makes me strong to carry on

It gives me a reason to be alive

If I let it go, how will I survive?

It helps me understand

My purpose, my calling

It gives me a reason

To fight against falling

Into the darkness

Rendering my life useless.

It is, thus, my pain

That makes me what I am

Don’t ask me to share

Don’t tell me you care

There is no other lie greater

To say you love me and leave later

I know you will not stay

You will go away

Like everyone I trusted

Live everyone I loved

So leave me alone

And just be gone

On your own way

Far, far, far away
