The struggle to make ends meet

I have seen the struggle
The struggle to feed oneself
The struggle to feed the family
The struggle to make ends meet
I cannot say that I have felt that struggle
Not specifically yet
But the pain is there to see
In the eyes of those who go through the same
The pride requesting them not to beg
But the hunger lowering their heads
And raising their palms for some money
For some help
To keep the hunger at bay
The desperate need of silencing
The bile juice which keeps on churning
Asking you to provide food to process
But life ain’t fair
We ain’t got no food
So, most of the times, we just drink water
With the hope that the next time
It will be some morsel of food
Instead of water going down our throats
This hope keeps us alive
Keeps us kicking
This spirit keeps us going
This pain makes us strong
We need to get out of our shells
And appreciate the people
Who are constantly going through this
Help them
Grow with them
Because not much can be achieved alone
But bigger and better things can be achieved together

P.S.: Today’s song pick is Out of Love by Alessia Cara. Have a grand week ahead.

Sincere hatred

Its difficult always

To make ends meet

And the success

Is also not guaranteed

But still we try

So that we feel okay

For trying

But once we lose

Interest in that thing

Then the try factor

Also evaporates

And NOT-trying makes

Us feel good now

We let it go

The actions related

To the thing doesn’t

Make us feel anything anymore

Or change our

Sincere hatred

Towards it

We just want to get

Rid of it asap

Bid it farewell

In the most respectable way

We can try

That things remain good

But if things turn

Out to be bad

Then also it doesn’t

Make much of a difference

Because we have

Decided from within

That time is nigh

To move ahead now

Reality can’t give me

Anymore good things to enjoy

At the present place

So time to move on

And feel the sense of

Freedom and sense of

Starting something new again

From scratch but hopes are

High indeed

Thanks to the sincere hatred


P.S.: Weekend is marching towards us at a gradual speed and let’s be ready to bid farewell to another week with the song Strangers in the night of Frank Sinatra 😀
