Tired of playing my part
Life seems to be falling apart
No fun in my stride
No joy in my smile
I don’t know how to learn this art
Never felt so lonely and aghast
It feels so tough to carry on
This pain in my heart for long borne
Want to keep it aside and rest for a while
Before I continue on this arduous mile
As I look around to find true friends
I see only masks, to fakeness no end
With whom to have a genuine talk?
Whose words are there without a mock?
Jealousy, treachery and beguiled minds
Honesty and loyalty and such tough finds
Tired of dealing with so many such
Want to retire, no other desire much
Have learnt that it is up to me
To copy them, or let it be
Have to learn to live lonely
‘Coz for such like me, there’s God only!
