Don’t tell me not to give up, remain silent
Don’t tell me it’ll all be well,
Keep trying, give your best and then some more,
It’ll be fine, remain silent!
Don’t make me dream of things that are not my destiny
Don’t make me see a future that shall not be
Don’t make me believe that miracles can happen, remain silent.
Don’t give me false hopes
Don’t tell me it’s not your fault, it bloody well is
Don’t tell me there is a light at the end of the tunnel,
it is way too dark on the way to reach that far,
So remain silent .
Believe that the worst possible would happen and then more
Believe that what could possibly go wrong would happen, and more than that too,
Believe that fruits of labour would take time to grow,
Believe that they eventually would grow.
Believe in the positive if only for the sake of your own sanity,
Believe that eventually everything that happens, happens for the ultimate good.
Labour on, and be silent.
Labour on, aimlessly, joylessly ,
Labour on for the ever elusive fruit,
Labour on to make some sense of the mess.
Labour on to make the knots less naughty,
Labour on to remain afloat.
Labour on to fight your battles
Labour on and be silent.
