Depressed yet impressed

வலியை தாங்கிடு மனிதா 
வாழ்கையில் இதுவும் ஒரு படி புரிதா?
கல்லும் மண்ணும் காலுக்கு புதிதல்ல
பாதையை நடந்து கடத்திடு மனிதா.

ரத்தம் உறைய உறைய குளிரும் 
அட்டை வலியில்லாமல்  உறியும் 
அச்சம்  என்றும் நிறைந்த உள்ளம் 
மௌன புன்னகைக்குள் மறையும்.

Bear the pain man
understand this is also a step in life?
Stones and sands aren't new to foot
man, walk past the path.

Cold freeze freezing blood
leech sucks without pain,
fear filled mind always
hide inside silent smile.

P.S.
These phrases come to mind by 3 am, while I deeply distressed. But I don’t want to reveal what caused me so depressed at that mid night time. I had touched emotional core many a time during night, only the darkness could witness the silent war.

Your poem is very beautiful. I am sorry you felt distressed in the middle of the night, that can be so difficult - and for some reason the night time makes the feeling so much worse. I hope the new day brings you peace of kind.

If you feel painful/depressed, just listen to oovoru pookkalume song... I listen to it when I feel down. It's an awesome song that can transform our moods... Good poem, btw.

constant war that keeps going on in our head...
I'm my own opponent and we juggle between victory and failure all the time

I wish u get to the victory part soon

உங்க மனசில இருந்த வலி எங்களுக்கு உறைக்குது!.

பாதையை கடக்க நம்மை படைச்ச அந்த ஆண்டவன் கட்டாயம் தைரியம் கொடுப்பான்.
