Unsolved Problem

I believe, we all have

one unsolved problem in life.

 

For a few, that may be a secret

which hides like a grenade in the pocket

For a few that may be a maniac foe

who picked us just for fun

 

For a few, that may be the mediocrity

which dances on the tunes of our dear ones

 

For a few that may be the parental toxic Warfield

into which we helplessly personified

 

For a few, that may be the spring of a lifetime

in which we can bloom, but can’t exude fragrance.
