Jaya Varma

A New Morning


I woke up again with swollen eyes
a heavy head, a heart that sighs
few cold splashes cleanse my thoughts
making my goal clear as a dot
every warm sip says to me
time will change, the curse would flee
for reasons, who've been pulling me back
laughing at me, with their cunningest trap
take my word, i would never stop
it has turned into fuel, the venom of your taunts
i wish you laugh forever this way
today at me, at yourself someday
the rocks of lies may be heavy indeed
but truth will sprout and show from beneath..

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
