Reborn

I looked up in the sky and it's still gray I wonder if it's still going to be okay When I'm on the verge of breaking I know I needed to do anything Not to collapse after being humiliated To recover after being stabbed and get rejected

Reborn is a poem written by Reiu Somao-I and shared with The Ugly Writers with the theme Recovery for the month of March.

After falling into your schemes and been trapped

Reaching the top but was suddenly dropped

I could feel the pain all over my body

I’ve drained all of my energy to stand up and get ready

I looked up in the sky and it’s still gray

I wonder if it’s still going to be okay

When I’m on the verge of breaking

I know I needed to do anything

Not to collapse after being humiliated

To recover after being stabbed and get rejected

The pain of seeing myself standing alone

Is protecting someone a sin for me to atone?

Twisted, money and status could claim innocence

Don’t turn a blind eye for your insolence

I want to shout my rage for you to feel my anguish

But I won’t drop to your level of rubbish

This is a silent war that you would surely win

But I refuse for this to become my fin

As I believe I always deserve so much better

So this time, If I say I give up, it doesn’t mean I surrender

It’s not my lose because I believe it’s yours

Throwing me away after using me

I looked around and there were too many doors

I have the option where I could be

Choosing to turn my back, forgive but never forget

If given a chance I would want to have a reset

I wish I never cared in the first place

And enjoyed the place I once called my solace

Finding my new beginning in an unfamiliar neighborhood

I tried to be careful to blend and not to be misunderstood

I learned so much and reminded myself not to get attached

Those feelings will make me cold yet it would protect me from any attack

I looked up in the sky again, it’s bright and cloudy

Better than before, though it’s filled with uncertainty

I could smile and laugh freely without worries

You’re just a part now of my sweet nightmares

I learned that falling hard and deep in the ground

Enclosed in a space with no sound

Drenched and soaked in the rain, helplessly

I got up on my own struggling and desperately

I won’t look back nor wish for you to come back

I’ll stop chasing love and try my luck

This time,  numb as I may be,  I won’t fall

I’ll continue to rise and keep on standing tall

I found a new reason to breathe and go on

As I look and wait for sunrise after the dawn

I would no longer mourn every night

Because you’re not the star anymore that gives me light.

Falling from the dark sky like a fallen angel

Drowning in the river like a boatman without a saddle

Crawling from the underground in a muddle

I’m reborn, made stronger from numerous struggles.
