Once again

Gauri Tahmankar

Today once again I felt that pain in my chest
Realising I am not at all making any progress but creating a mess

It's getting worse day by day
Though I keep telling myself that today is better than yesterday

Things get pretty ugly sometimes
The way I act and what I actually am do not rhyme

Lonely, hurt, disturbed; I am totally broken now
Putting the pieces back together hoping things can be fixed somehow

I do not know with certainty if things will be normal again
But I can always keep trying to be better and strong enough to bare the pain
