Riposte

Drenched in tears, I found a broken heart
Wrapped in smiles it had appeared then.
Sunk in fear, I found a soul
Sated with courage, it had looked at me then.
In silence, I found a few words
knowing not where they came from,
they dissolved the dissonance
that had scathed me like a bed bug
And I found few pearls of hope,
hidden in the shells of despair.

Hustling in the crowd of tired people,
I bumped into a few ,
with an unwearying spirit.
Flowing in the stream of life,
I enjoyed together the sounds of
splashes and tears.
In the reflection of a millions,
I caught a glimpse of mine.

Desperately looking for myself,
I lost track;
and when I started to enjoy the maze,
I found myself again.
