Happiness Is Just An Illusion - Poem by Mduduzi OneMind

I'm starting to believe that to some of us 'happiness is just a word'
When everything you try turn to fall apart, you become furious and a target of the voices in your head. You watch the time tick listening to its sound as it passes you. Still you remain left alone inside your own shell of nightmares. Becoming far away from the light and the people surrounding you.

Torture voices antagonizing your mind. Slowly you become short tempered easily provoked filled with bitterness. You can feel the demons haunting your soul, preying on your thoughts. Life gets really harder as your life get filled with more mistakes, discouragement events, disappointments and failures. As you watch everyone around you looking all happy and being active in life.

You keep telling yourself that your turn is coming, same words being spoken by your mother, father siblings and friends after witnessing the sorrow soul in your face. If happiness was a bird, you'd be the first to seize it, hoping to find some comfort to unbroken your heart. But really life gets darker and days more stressing than before. All the motivations are starting to sound like lies. Your faith is slowly becoming nothing, for everything you believe in is not going accordingly.

You've prayed and prayed but still it doesn't get any better. Death appear to be the only solution, but it still pains you to know that it will sadden those who love you.

So keep calm, even though it doesn't help at all. You've tried your best to succeed, but know I assure you, beating yourself from inside will vanish at some point
