hardships, miseries, knives, fights,
a man tries to avoid them,
yet they come, and yet they stay.

a man tries to uproot them,
hoping for them to go away,
yet they come again,
yet the time is again the same.

time flies, he uproots,
they grow again he tries to live with them,
and it's not so sane.

then, something comes by,
releases him from pain,
it's flying, it's calm, he knows it's temporary still it feels good,
still it feels calm.

there was never a need to uproot,
to resist all he needed was a calming release,
and a hope, that it isn't temporary,
that it comes again.

About this poem

We all have faced miseries, and we have tried to overcome them, and we (mostly) have failed. Now, do we even care about solving problems? We care about forgetting about them, searching for ways to indulge our mind somewhere. Hoping that the ways we found to indulge our mind somewhere, stay for long.

    Having faced miseries, do we even care about solving problems? Good point but I did not understand that from the poem, nice words as they are.
