Everything we see doesn't give us the clear picture of what is really going on.


A lady walking down the dark road,

Walking herself home,

She looks happy-

She seems to have no worries.


Inside of her are burning desires-

If only she could fly,

Then she would soar high,

Soar with the birds of the sky!


She is envied by many,

Not because of what the eyes could see-

Such elegance and beauty,

But of her strong will and positivity,


As she took the path less traveled,

Where none can see her,

And with a sad lament she can’t bear-

Tears are streaming down her face.


The forlorn emotions have now aroused!

The engraved sentiments rooted within-

Her pretense, all that she is,

For the sake of the people whom she cherished!


Her hands sored of so much work.

Her body ached of pain unconquerable.

Her heart broke of anxiety not revealed.

Her soul crushed of burdens too heavy.


A lady walking down the dark road-

She goes by the name of Lydia.

A lady of vigor in the discernments of other people,

If only they could perceive that she’s in deep trouble.


She stopped alongside a small house,

Coming from the inside is a tiny beam of light

And the silhouettes of beings waiting for her return-

Sleepy in thought but alive in senses!


She wiped her tears,

And entered her home,

She smiled once more ignoring the sting-

She’s trying to bury it within for she needs to be strong!


To show her weakness she cannot afford-

Her mother and little siblings depend on her.

Their happiness is her concern-

Embraces followed, her hurts swept away!
