A smog of toxic frustration
Suffocates the breath of aspiration.
The tiredness drowns out the hope,
How can anyone constantly cope?
The inner demons chew my tender heart
To create problems at every start.
It becomes a struggle against the self,
The greatest ever war in itself.
The smothering heaviness is crushing
The bubble of exasperation is bursting.
A feeling of darkness overwhelms,
Tossing me into frightening realms.
If only dreams were like stardust,
And hopes would never rust,
Then everlasting tranquility would illuminate
This insecure world where darkness dominate.
