When the sky is clear and the moon is not there,

I feel the lump rising in my throat but now I don’t care.

As I watch the sky , I tell the invisible to shut up,

I want it to stop pitying me, my frail face in my hands I cup.

Whenever I’m pushed out, I show that I don’t care.

I show that I am sulky to fight back every tear.

Then and again I am told to get away, I am told to clear out,

Am I even important? The thought runs me into doubt.

As everybody stings the poison of their words into me,

I know I’ll remember it all till eternity.

Living with the scars is what is to be done now on,

Nothing can be done otherwise, my strength is all gone.

Fake a smile, hold your head high and keep giving,

Because life goes on, it pushes you forward, so keep living.

  1. Superb Saadia! Just don’t give up gals, keep going, on the way make compromises and adjustments, get what you want. I know it is easier said than done without some support and backing. Hugs and love to you Saadia. Have a nice day everyday. Here it is time to say good night. 🙂
