I Used To Be A Comedian - Poem by Hemendra Singh Deopa

Once upon a time
I used to be a comedian
When I laughed from the bottom of my heart and I loved to make other's laugh.
I was pure like the light, used to love almost everybody.
I loved the air I loved the soil
I loved mountains and I loved to dream.
I used to dream, to be working to spread a lot of smiles.
Alas! I grew up to be something else.
To feel the pain and became used to pain.
Almost everything turned out to be a lie.
And those lies broke my heart.
All of it sealed in the depth of my broken heart.
Today let me open that door,
It was the society, it was lie, it was love, it was expectation, it was rigmarole, it was dead morals, it was lost hope, it was all of it that broke my heart.
Today I stand in a crowd and I feel lonely inside.
And I pretend to smile...
Irony! it is,
Once upon a time
I used to be a comedian
When I laughed from the bottom of my heart and I loved to make other's laugh.
I hope to find the light,
That burns the sulk inside.
I hope to find the light
That makes me bright as I used to be when I was a child.
To be that comedian to make everybody laugh.
Once upon a time I used to be a comedian and I loved to smile and to make everybody laugh.
As I want nothing but to live a meaningful life.
To find the truth and to be true to my soul.
