The Battle Of Tears

The Battle Of Tears

The battle of tears was fought in the fields of the eyes
With a fierce battle of fears fighting too hard in the mind
When war of emotions was all set to conquer the mind
When one’s own self became too mute and infirm to try
To win over all the foes that was just made by thoughts
When mind became the fighter and the thoughts the foes
When battle field of life were armed with negative thoughts
That made it fight too hard to win its wishes than it needs
And the mind lost and since the opponent was its dreams
Dreams for having always better versions in all form and kind
Since it had no time at all to see what the others were having
And the dismal tragedies faced by the other under privileged
When it had only the greed to compare to the lives of others
Who were just above the levels of self and for some reasons
That just spoiled the vigor and made fatigue for the mind
To find ways to fight against its own fears and made by self
When tears were seen filled in eyes and hopes seen faded
Vanishing away the dreams of peace from one’s own mind
Mending ways to make more to its superlative levels and forms
Ending up in total sadness and madness caused by thoughts
Wandering the unsatisfied soul with reason seen as anxiety
To have the best in a short period of time and with no efforts
When the battle of the thoughts by and between were fought
Ending up nowhere and winding up to a state of fear and in tears
