In this world of diseases unlimited
is there a cure for bad thoughts?
Can medicines alleviate the pain
of a heart torn apart by an action?
Can kindness stop the vengeance
that starts out as but a reaction?
Can our thinking that all is well
fix the scars borne out of abuse?
Can it restore the faith, the hope
that we weren’t born just to use?
Can something, if anything, stop
used hearts from holding grudges?
Can we somehow soon forget
our painting of life has smudges?
Can we accept that in our lives
even friendship can easily fade?
That if the heat hits for a moment,
forgotten is our friendship’s shade.
Somehow I cannot just accept,
that in this life, we are all alone,
It might just be the biggest truth,
but so is friendship when known;
till someone finds the elusive cure,
for bad thoughts that do entrap,
at times, I can’t help but think,
this life’s journey is always crap.
till that elusive cure is discovered,
I’ll welcome darkness than light,
nothing beats that helplessness,
of having wings, just not flight.
