There is a feeling of lacking

Somewhere deep in my heart

Something that another has

Why I don’t have it?


My heart beating fast

Silently hurting and worrying

As if a beast is hidden

Wanting that thing so badly


Secretly wishing bad to happen

Hoping they will fail and fall

Thinking I will be better than them

Slowly I am falling


There is a fire

The self is burning

Restless, punching hard

To the wall


The self failed to realize

What I have that the other don’t

Which others wished to have

Forgot my hands are full


Everybody’s fortune is different

The timing is different

No two person has same blessing

Mine is about to come
