Voices Within - Poem by Avik Datta Gupta

Here I come to heal you, heal you from your pains
Just share your woes as much as you can
Tell your heart out, weep if you can
Do you need a friend? Do you need some peace?
Do you need some food? Or someone else to please?
Do you need a home? Or want some sleep?
Or take hold of your life in your own strong grip?
Are you lonely in this crowded world?
Or a sinner in your own esteem?
Or another dreamer who hates to dream?

Days are numbers on a paper nailed to the wall
And one fine day you'll get your call
The Gods of Fortune will surely smile
And grant you happiness for a while.
Happiness and mirth are of a relative kind
The way you interpret is all in your mind
So smile away, even if you are in tears
You'll need courage to combat and forbear
And if you find it, you'll sense the awesome might
As the built in fire propels you to fight..
All your pains and woes one by one

And then, you are the victor and you are the king
You are the greatest living being
There is lot of grief and hate planted in our minds
All because of the spite brewed socially in mankind
Don't discount your fire and courage within
It is more than enough to make you win
So stand up and smile, dance and shout
To find yourself …the rest will all be history in doubt
