Destiny Misplaced - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Life has turned so far around that it's purpose has been lost,
it's destiny misplaced inside a shell of emptiness.

Pain residing upon the face of fate, unnoticed by all through-
out a lifetime of cruelty and abuse.

Strangely quiet, never speaking, eyes always looking into the
very depths of other people's, constantly searching for the
trust which can never be there between them

Solitude frozen in time for all eternity, afraid to be melted
for fear of tears being released and anger unleashed from
deep wells hidden inside.

Afraid to see their depth and reasons for residing within a
small child.

    Our human life is mostly designed in that way where somehow or other you have to stumble down and fail.Though the soul does not like to be there the fate will drag in that dark well. Perhaps, this itself is our irony of life.
    And these miseries are unbearable to that child who lives in every person.
