Longing to feel joy again
Does sorrow ever take a rest?
Control emotions with behest.
Breathe the air, with weightless chest.
To feel again even in brief
No more tears of pain and grief.
No tangled rage and disbelief.
Or shattered remnants, just relief
I long to one day smile again.
Does every heart deserve to mend?
Bind up wounds and sorrowed rend.
Undo wrongs and make amends.
To go back now, impossible
No virtuous deeds, no words extol.
No more forgiveness for this soul.
Or simple words meant to console.
So I will sit in unsought sorrow
And pray that joy will come tomorrow.
