“The society values your success and the people love your joyful face but nobody wants to know your pain, struggles and inner feelings. Everyone surrounds you with adulation when you are successful but turns their back when you are a failure. This poem is about the loneliness we feel deep inside as a result of living in this selfish world.”
Under the thick layers of my joyful face,
Exists my sad self which I can’t replace.
Behind my achievements that I proudly showcase,
Exists aching struggles which I can’t erase.
Nobody sails to the dark depths of my core
My feelings remain on a lonely Island’s shore.
My life is losing its joy and vigour
Hate wearing this joyful face that people adore.
