Amidst all the laughter, voices and cheers
There was a soul who moved here and there
Unnoticed and unheard it crept in the shadows
Hoping it might find someone in the crowd that echoed

But no one came and no one saw

How devoid was her soul she thought
As she sat on a nearby bench
Inhaled and exhaled lonliness
That made her heart wrench

Solitude was her only friend

That wrapped around her every now and then
Not caring about her blemishes
Accepting her without any second guesses

Devastation grips me I can't find my way out
"Where are you my savior?" My heart shouts
But there was nothing, no one but eerie darkness
Surrounding me and pulling me into the emptiness

Oh Lord! I cried in the dark of the night
Would my life ever be beautiful and bright?
There was nobody who answered or even cared to listen
The noise of my soul, ravaged and broken

I ran and ran and ran
But could not find the gate
That would lead me out of this pit of misery to a place where i could find peace again

Fear hammer locked me
Leaving me in a tousled state
Pain engulfed my body
Severely wounding my gait

Tears flooded out of my eyes
I could see my end approaching
I lied on the dead leaves
And started weeping

Not a single soul heard my sobs
Nobody came to my rescue
A venomous gale hit me
And i knew i wouldn't make through

My heart dropped
I was ready to die
I had accepted my fate
But suddenly i heard a voice, wry
"Don't let your strength fade
Protect it before it's too late."

Those words sank in my skin
And gave me courage to stand and up was my chin
The world may not be in my favor
But i will always be
Don't need any savior
As a rescuer lies within me

I mustered all the courage that i could
And the invisible manacles around my wrists broke
My cry pierced the night
And a ball of light blinded my sight
I heaved the luminous cannon in the air
The ball tore the darkness
And the entire forest illuminated
Sunlight once again fell on my face
As i gazed
At the beauty of Mother nature
That reflected the beauty of my own stature
A triumphant smile plastered my face
As i wondered in amazement  


Tears of happiness filled his eyes
He felt like the happiest man alive
When he saw the tiny body of his son
His delicate face made his heart burst

Burst into eternal bliss
As today he was blessed
With the best gift
That God could ever give

He shouted all about the streets
"Annabeth! I'm a father" He exclaimed as he passed Dunken's Eatery
"Ricky! Did you hear I’m a father?"
He screamed, shrieked and shouted in joy as if he had reached infinity

But the doctors revealed something bitter
That made him shiver
A fatal heart disease his son had acquired
On hearing this, his soul was on fire

He tried his best
Consulted every doctor in town
He prayed all day and night
But the prayers couldn't save his son from dying

His heart sank deep
All that he could do now was weep
He felt half dead
With pain seeping in his body every second

A year has passed now
But the wound is still fresh somehow
As he sheds a tear almost everyday
Asking Lord "Why couldn't my son stay?"
