It's hard sometimes
by Fatin Inani Ahmad Zailani

Life could be hard I guess
When you have nothing to hold
Nothing to give but only receive
But still want the best
Out of the rest

Life could hit you to the ground
Make you helpless that even you
Yourself ashamed to look at the mirror
Not because of the image it reflect

She Found Herself
by Tara Porter

“ She was only 11 years old.
When her dad washed away.
She saw darkness when her mother got cold.
She always told people to stay.
She left home within three years.
She became more happy than ever.
Even though she is happy she has tears.
She knows she has people that will love her forever.
She tried to control herself but lost.
She felt unwanted.

Self-worth
by Precious Whispers

People rejected me for the way I was,
The urge to change myself rose
more than ever just because
there was nothing else I chose.

I desired to be part
of my ''foremost'' friends
And took it to heart
that it had to make sense,

and said to me:

''My dear, if this world was without problems,
wouldn't paradise lose its value?''

Triumphs of Life
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Gloomy darkness seems to have engulfed
The whole world of life
As light has hidden its head behind.
Sobs of sorrows are heard
Everywhere in each and every terrain.

The flocks are forced to stay back home in fear.
And I am glued to the scary news channels
In the hope of good news
That the hard times have passed

Walking into the wind
by Chris Quinn

There’s nothing for it sometimes,
But to walk straight and face into it,
Eyes and nose running
from the frigid gale,
Wind pushing back like an indifferent mob

There’s nothing for it sometimes
But to throw your arms wide,
and push back
Looking to the joy of coming home

207
by Andrada Predescu

I’ve always played my music loud
maybe its something I learned
to drown out my parents fighting

or to match the sound of my fathers screaming
constantly looping in my head
long after he’s gone

everyone copes differently I guess,
my keyboard clicks

Shoulders To Cry On
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Deaths of young people, near and dear ones,
Their dead bodies float in mourning rivers
While we helplessly watch ourselves
Being carried away by uncontrolled tears.

They die in hospitals, built for saving lives,
And we stay back home or in quarantines,
Practising the precautionary measures
While honoring the helpless govt. guidelines.

On a Stormy Day
by Precious Whispers

Just like you would open the door
to a stranger on a stormy day,

welcome the souls
who knock on your heart.
You never know what
they've gone through.
