Assumed Worries

She wasted so much time bleating,
now she could hardly recall
the last time she enjoyed
having a good laugh

She questioned every little smile
that occasionally drifts over her lips
and doubted every tiny happiness
that sometimes passed by to greet

She had drawn a dark curtain
in front of her eyes
draped in a dark shroud
of deceit and lie

And when life sometime
beacons her casually from a distance
she assumes the sound
to be a cacophony and a source of irritant

The shell had become
her unfortunate abode
happiness became an illusion
where she struggled to remain afloat

Worries should be always
nipped at the bud,
otherwise trivial complains
later becomes difficult to snap

  1. Really lovely. But why copyright it? Let it it be copyleft, for all. True happiness is in realising your gifts and giving it all away. We came from nothing and will go to nothing.

    Just a random thought! I have copyleft everything in my life.
