//oh, she don’t see, the light that’s shining
deeper than the eyes can find it
maybe we have made her blind
so she tries to cover up her pain
and cut her woes away
’cause covergirls don’t cry
after their face is made//
as the world demeans tears, fears
the true visions, emotions of one
wanes like a moon, never growing back,
faces are veiled, with satin cloth,
whose threads are of numbness,
disheartedness, dismal and despair.
the shine of one is overshadowed,
by censorious acts.
one with short-sighted view
blames, find faults,
with their microscopic thoughts,
undermining the real efforts of others.
//but there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
you should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
and you don’t have to change a thing
the world could change its heart
no scars to your beautiful
we’re stars and we’re beautiful//
we are surrounded by heads,
whose eyes goggles right from the fringes
to the toe nail colour,
the mere looks causing insecurity,
judgements cracking down the confidence,
the lame comments on the wrist’s size,
body weight, waist circumference,
peeping bones and bent back
are the slow poison of the modern days.
as long as one is caught
in the vicious circle of
blame, criticism, opinions,
age old explications,
the grief continues to consume us,
as we unfold the ways to
water moral self and open the doors of
the world around changes,
changes slowly, maybe not.
as we sow and nurture the seeds of hope,
on gloomy days of now sunshine,
hope grows to be a tree,
providing doses of optimism,
courage to cut off things
that bring you down.
as we begin to build a halo,
let the real emotions do magic,
we begin to glow,
brighter than the stars in a dark sky.
//nurture you, yourself//
