In the chilling winter
he was feeling the heat
inside, deep inside the heart
amidst his own people
he was searching him
is he labelled worthless!
if it is not hypocrisy,  
what must be then..

He wanted to say,
to be listened to,too 
they were not amused,
he craved to reach out
with warmth,
warmth was not returned
in exchange,
in true measure
but he too wants to be loved

why he is like this?
but he is like this.

In the drizzling rain
near shore drenched in grief
he could feel the waves
touching his toes
retreating to sea 
looking like they retreating,
from him 
but could not feel 
whether it was tears or rain.

A rancour in the eyes,
melancholy piercing his heart
he went on to think :
is my simplicity to blame,
is my less fortune to curse,
is my ignorance to pretensions,
my biggest enemy,
my weakest link !
till he met the man
who said : 
Let them be they 
you be, as you are 
for the father, up in the Air,
knows who is fair, who is rare.

    I think you have captured the feelings that many people are dealing with every day. As you mentioned, in the end the father knows. Bravo๐Ÿ‘
