Mother the Great

DownUp +14

My mother is great who loves me
My mother is brave who saves me
My mother is wise who gave me wisdom
My mother is a teacher who taught me
My mother is a friend who accompanies me
My mother is intelligent who understands me
My mother sleeps less to cook and feed me
My mother waits for me when I am late from school
My mother cures me when I suffer
My mother prays for my better prospects

Fear of the World

DownUp +6

A dark sea churns in my chest,
I feel like I’m losing breath,
Fear clogs up my throat,
In anxiety’s chokehold

Deep breath in and out comes choppy both ways
I want to scream! Should I pray?
Practically shaking
Out the window goes rational thinking,
Wondering, wondering
Worst scenarios playing

What if? What if? The room is too small
Or I’m too big I don’t know I don’t know
Help me! Help me! Please don’t touch me

I’m surrounded yet isolated
I think my friends are secretly bored of me,
My mother never wanted me,
Father left me,
Brother hates me

All that’s left is me
I’m scared, I’m scared
Of myself and of the world
Who am i? Who am i?
Everyone else seems to know except i

Why? I ask, why?
Failure encloses me in folds of cold darkness
My heart begins to beat more not less

It’s as though I captured
A bird and locked it away in my
Chest. Beating, banging, struggling to escape
Locked in my mind I slowly suffocate.

Daddy, I trusted you

DownUp +6

Daddy I trusted you to catch me
You let me crash and burn
Daddy I love you
But you still walked away
Daddy I miss you
Yes I sound insane
Daddy I hate you
No I’ll never be the same
Why did you leave me?
Why didn’t you fight?
Was I not important enough to
Continue to be in your life?.

You and me

DownUp +5

You and me were the best of friends
Who had big brown eyes and brown hair too
When the sun shined and smiled we did too
We had a smile as big as what some called the great west Nile
We shared the same veins and the same beats to our hearts
When you blinked I peeked when you sang I whispered
It was tough for me when you left me here, but always will I remember
You and me were the best of friends.

Angels fly in the sky

DownUp +3

Angels fly in the sky
Not visible and shy

Perform duties on command
Have no desire & no demand

Out of them four are major
Seek to deliver on order

One is for the books
Message to messenger looks

Second is on pouring rains
Earth to fertile for grains

Third is on taking life
Without weapon or knife

Fourth is ready with sure
To destroy earth to sky sure

I’ll be there for you

DownUp +9

I’ll keep you safe
I’ll keep you warm
I’ll be here for you
When you wake at dawn

I’ll always be with you
Throughout the day
Holding your hand
To show you the way

I’ll be by your side
When ever you need
A shoulder to cry on
In your hour of need

I’ll be there for you
However long it takes
I’ll be happy for you
Although my heart breaks

Wishing someday
We will be together
Living our dream
Forever and ever.

Tomorrow never come

DownUp +4

Tomorrow never come.
Adorable sun never set.
But come if you will never harm,
And set if you will never hurt.
Terrors of this evil world,
Cruel and wickedness of beings
Leave me nervous and overwhelmed.
I would fly if I had wings.
Death is no longer remarkable.
Death of my fellows terrifies me.
Youngsters’ death ain’t remarkable.
Who knows? Maybe I’m the next.
I gotta pray, obey and prepare.
Since death is a snare.
