Is it true that i have become so fragile off lately that i have just lost all the courage to confront people?
Why do i hesitate now to claim my own rights, somehow?
Why is it that i walk on the road with my head always facing the ground?
Is it true that i have become more quiet than frustrated at the same time?
What is it exactly?
My guilt or my incapability?
I don’t know where am i going,
There are times i fail to understand what i am doing,
Why this emptiness?
Has my life lost its meaning?
Who am i, anyway ?
A burden on my parents?
What am i doing?
Eating away their hard-earned money?
Why are my eyes always filled with tears at the pettiest of issues now?
What have i become ?
Where am i lost?
Why cannot i fight with anyone, any longer?
To whom did i lose the power of persuasion?
Why can’t i be at peace with myself?
What is happening?
Who is to understand my predicament?
Why don’t i seem to like anyone around me?
Is it a hysteria that has attacked me?
I see 17 year olds getting into live-in relationships and i realise that this world isn’t the same place anymore, as i have been thinking.
I don’t like a thing around me,
I was never like this,
I guess, i have turned into some alien.
I don’t even feel like talking.
It appears as if i have lost all incentives of doing anything,
I fear, what will become of me?
I don’t want to remove my headphones,
Else i will have to be a part of this cruel world,
I don’t want to wake up from sleep, ever, else i will have to be a part of this cruel world.
Wake me up when this world becomes a better place, may be, by that time, i will gather some courage.
