The little efforts at making peace
Seem so lost in a thirsty desert.
Life is not about deals always,
Even if the demons say so.
Letting go and letting in –
Makes one a hero and a coward.
How much and what you make of it -
Your choice to remain in the rat race.
Blaming fortunes and the villain –
Seems the easiest way out.
No family, no religion –
Seems sanctuary enough in bad times.
Weathering the storm with grace
Makes one a braveheart, so I am told.
Crying silently, consoling quietly –
Waiting for the darkness to fade away.
