Kavita Torzonn


-Jess Fernandes

To bear today's sorrow
Yesterday's happiness
To illuminate the world's darkness
Light a ray of your sweet smile.

The embers
In your heart
Keep them fanning with new confidence
Lift your feet towards victory's mountain
Remember always
Struggle do not end in a day

You are searching something
That don't exist
You've lost everything you had.
In the bargain
You've forgotten
Your innocent smile too

In your endless search for me
Your greed knows no bound
You've tied a noose around your neck
And you are walking turning your back
To humanity.
