Darkness by Parmjit Dharni


All by myself
That’s been me
Many years of thoughts kept to myself
Freedom at last
As soon as began to fly like a bird
My wings were cropped
Stay at home
Thoughts gathering in my head
Why me?
Why now?
I want to be happy
Now I’m full of woe
Hanging my head down
Sleeping too much
Unable to sleep
Moved by people’s kindness and gratitude
But nothing can help
This will not go away
Not today
Not tomorrow
That is what I cling to
