You carry the hurt of everyone

Blotting out the sun

With cold threads of silken worries

Lacing up your heart like a cocoon.

What malady this brings your immediate family

Whom you now barely see

No smile you have to give

Which truly shows  happiness.

Just like a phantom you will one day realize

With forlorn regret in your eyes,

You never lived your life.
