Fight Back - Poem by Paromita Falia

You feel numb, you see darkness in everything;
The darkness only seem to grow darker the longer you stare.
The company of your friends no longer amuse you,
You long to be left alone.
Shopping is no longer the treatment to your broken heart,
You find the corner of your dim lit room much more comforting.
You can't help thinking, you think all the time - you think of plans of escapade.
Suddenly, the strings tying your pyjama shorts seems interesting,
You wonder what would happen if you tie it tightly to your wrist or better yet hang yourself with it from the ceiling fan.
The room you locked yourself in grows boisterous,
The first kit appears to be inviting you for a heavenly ride.
The dissection box is yearning to release your soul from your wretched body;
Yet a feeble voice in the back of your mind is trying to distract you from giving into these ideas of bliss
It is trying to reason with you.
You hear it say, 'you are not worthless -you are not a burden
Wake up the fighter inside you - kill your problems, not yourself.
Be passionate, have faith and keep your hopes high;
The blend of these values will make you the Queen.'
Listen to this subtle voice for once!
Its tone may be weak and rarely audible, but the strength behind it is huge.
Respect that voice and you'll win,
Instead of gray, you'll see color in everything.
Raise your chin and hold your head high,
Remove the curtain of hair hiding your face, and fight back head on.
