How Hard It Is To Manage Life - Poem by Noshi Gilani

How hard it is to manage life
As hard as making you my friend

There might be a whole new story
Please get to the point

I might drown in these shadows
Please light your eyes!

I am compelled by how it feels
To make you sad yet unaware of your sadness

One must give blood from the heart
Watch out! Do not write poetry

How hard it is for the self
To deny what it all means!
