Distress Out Poem by Kezang Dawa

Distress Out

Rating: 3.4

Distressed out

Why I was born in this world

Into a broken home?

I wish I could have died

Before leaving the womb.

My life is a jock: a living tomb.

I've searched high and low

Through the window of my world.

To find my long lost mom and dad.

Where are you?
Have I been had?

Set apart, my heart feels spread.

Oh God! Help me find my folks and

Free my soul from all unspoken,

I may as well not be alive:

It's like living without light.

Hi Kezang, A poem on the woes of being orphaned. Heart-rending. Exquisite poem, on hurt imposed by fate. Nobody to complain to. The entities who one would look up to in agony- the parents and God Almighty- have easily/readily abandoned the child. The question remains: Whose fault? No wonder, the poem is selected poem of the day!

Even a life in living in darkness is yet better than no life! Be faithful there is hope for the living!

You might have undergone some trauma or a tragic phase at some point of time, but the fact that you are here as a gifted poet in the company of so many others, makes you unique. Why I was born in this world / Into a broken home? / I wish I could have died Before leaving the womb / My life is a jock: a living tomb.
