Happy Endings

Standard

‘Twas unendurable
Amidst
Lost faiths
Broken marriages
Bankrupt businesses
‘Twas unimaginable
Surrounded by
Deaths of the young
Wars of the nation
Hunger of the poor
‘Twas never easy
The stability
The strength
The struggle
‘Twas the only choice
Keep on going
Keep on working
Keep on hoping
She would too
Witness
The glorious dawn
Of the good days
Furiously blinking as
She childishly wiped
Her damp cheek
The only words
That briskly slipped from
Her arid throat
Her blistered tongue
Her parched lips
“But I just want
to believe in happy endings”
