I once had two sparkling eyes full of hopes,
But the familiar forces made them blind.
They made sure to check on my survival frequently,
But that was just to butcher my innocence.
I cried out loud for help every now and then-
As I simply couldn’t understand what my fault was.
Once they found out I was alive,
I was strangulated with my hands tied!
It seems like I am only made to be tormented,
But still I long for some pure and fresh air.
Even with so much of despicability and ignobleness,
I still crave to live at least for once.
I know it is too much to ask for in just one life-
That’s why I just wish to give invisibility a try.
Had I become inconspicuous, I wouldn’t have been any ruler,
But this could at least let me escape this hate.
Many a person talk about the power of healing,
But all I think of is being the real me.
I know that the world just wants to impale my heart-
Yet my mind keeps on striving hard to ignore them.
I wonder how it feels to be free from all those stares,
And live a life without any of their scrutiny.
Since none of these wishes are ever going to be granted,
Ranting to this blank canvas will forever be my only option.
