Keeping it together

 cute

Half an hour

And a blank mind

A near mystery as to how I’m gonna write

Mind’s too full

Of stress and misery

After realizing that mine is not the only tragedy

Too many have got it tough

Too many and not much bluff

Only weary smiles

Tired exhausted eyes

Circles under their eyes

From all the stressful sleepless nights

And yet a faint twinkle in their eyes

And a rare sight

Of their healthy and full smile

From the hope of when it’s all gonna be alright

When the tables turn and let them guide

Each other into a wholesome endless light

Where all their dreams reside

Coming true after all this time

But first comes the sleepless nights

Where nothing is for them to set right

 And all things seem out of their might

And when the only thing that keeps them together

Is their relentlessly hopeful stride in life.

  1. Nice poem sister! I hope you are feeling better! you rightly said The hardest thing is to keep it together! Being strong is also a series of breaking down and standing up again and again with faith and hope 🙂

  2. I love this Hiba. A reminder that we are not the only ones with battles and we are not the only ones struggling too. I love the line where you mention- though they are tired, there’s a faint twinkle in their eyes.
