Dormant dreams, The UnBorn

Dormant Dreams

I borrowed someone else's dream
Believing I could pay it back in instalments
Unaware of the endless interests I gave up
Only to be drowned in debts forever.

I am stuck with someone else's dream
Without an instruction manual to handle it
I keep throwing it away and picking it again
Allowing it to be ransacked and rusted.

I failed to love someone else's dream
Though there are diamonds seeking attention
My hands long to play with cobblestones
Searching frantically with no clue to find them.

I messed up someone else's dream
Crucifix to the laws of an imperfect world
With questions unasked and answers unknown
Burdened and soothed by the musings of thoughts.

I found my own dreams one day- a little too late
Hibernating within the crypts of a naive mind
Should I wake them up and stab them to death
Or allow them to sleep and remain sleepless?

The UnBorn

Mom, I am so scared...
Why am I left in the dark?
Why am I detested like a scornful mouth?
Why am I doomed to drown in the drain?
Pray tell me and care not to mourn
For I am not even born.

Mom, I am growing nervous...
When will I see your face?
When will I cuddle in the warmth of your palm?
When will I learn the lines of the numbers and curves of the alphabets?
Pray tell me and care not to mourn
For I am not even born.

Mom, I am worried dead...
Where has your smile gone?
Where has the jingle of your trinkets gone?
Where has the soft tone of dad's whispers gone?
Pray tell me and care not to mourn
For I am not even born.

Mom, I am totally clueless...
What have I done wrong?
What have I done to be dumped in the trash?
What have I done to be labelled a sin?
Pray tell me and care not to mourn
For I am not even born.

Mom, I am sincerely sorry
For putting you in pain
For rolling over and kicking you again
And for being the unwanted child of disdain
Pray kill me and care not to mourn
For I am not even born.
