Robbed of joy



I am robbed of the will to live
Yet the flower blooms and sun comes up in the morning
What is life for me or for you?
When no one is your friend and no one is your foe
Birds chirp and winds blow, people run to their show
But nothing seems interesting
Colors have faded away
And my heart?
Oh my heart is hardened it sings songs of death and darkness
I am robbed of joy
Yet the world is in joy.
