Better Days Are Coming

by Praveen Kumar

As the world struggles to cope in this never before seen Covid-19 pandemic, lives are being changed topsy-turvy. What was taken for granted has been uprooted. World over people are now waking up to a new reality and in many cases a new beginning in all sorts.

As nature takes control of mother earth, it is time to take a look at the way we have been living all these while and look at it as an opportunity for a new beginning.

grow - Better Days Are Coming

I sing, I laugh, I speak,
I cook, I sleep, I work,
I look out of the window,
Hoping for a break in the clouds;

Watching the world implode within itself,
deep down, I weep for a loss,
as I try to keep it all together,
I hope and I pray;

lost in a sea of words,
echo through the skies,
the nightmare of the reality
taunt me as I stare down an empty barrel;

A voice inside my head tells me,
of a world turned upside down,
a world where everyone & everything is forgiven,
a world full of misplaced trust and faith;

Life is a mirage of hopes and dreams,
shattered in an instant,
I am swimming in a sea of emotions and thoughts,
trying to keep my head above water as life tries to drown me;

I’ve got nowhere to go and nowhere to run,
I stand there and take a deep breath,
I’ve come to realize,
with every ending comes a new beginning;

As one door closes and another one opens,
it’s time to clean out the ghosts of the past,
to welcome a new beginning and a new me,
in a new future filled with new possibilities;

As the night falls,
the trees sway to the wind,
signalling the winds of change,
and the hope of better days to come;
