Are you there?

I am in the dark
I don't know why.
Is it just night or an eclipse?
I am in the dark.

I am shouting,
And asking for help,
To take me out of this mess,
But you are just watching me.

I am worried, I am pained,
I am hopeless and totally confused.
I have a baby in hands,
He is eager to see this world.

I am calling out for you,
Hold my hand and take me up,
From the dark, but you are not listening,
Did we never love?

I am just asking for help,
But you are closing all the doors,
Not bothered to look back,
Not even at your baby?

You are not listening,
Please save us,
Let us live, take us out of the dark,
Don't push us away.

Did we never love?
What was my mistake?
Come back for the child's sake,
End this darkness for me.

Quotes from Paulo Coelho's books

When you're afraid of change!
“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”

When you're misunderstood or maligned!
“Don’t explain. Your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you.”

When you feel disappointed about a failure!
“But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.”

When you're unsure of who your true friends are!
“Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs. False friends only appear at difficult times, with their sad, supportive faces, when, in fact, our suffering is serving to console them for their miserable lives.”

After a break-up!
“When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.”

When you grow envious of other people!
“Some people appear to be happy, but they simply don’t give the matter much thought. Others make plans: I’m going to have a husband, a home, two children, a house in the country. As long as they’re busy doing that, they’re like bulls looking for the bullfighter: they react instinctively, they blunder on, with no idea where the target is. They get their car, sometimes they even get a Ferrari, and they think that’s the meaning of life, and they never question it. Yet their eyes betray the sadness that even they don’t know they carry in their soul. Are you happy?”

When you feel overwhelmed by everything in your life!
“Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.”

When it’s time to let go!
“It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.”

When you're afraid to love!
“Love is always new. Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to reach out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take love where we find it, even if it means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness. The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.”

When you feel like you can’t hold on anymore!
“It is said that the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn.”

When your haters hate on you!
“The world is divided into those who understand me and those who don’t. In the case of the latter, I simply leave them to torment themselves trying to gain my sympathy.”

When you feel suppressed by others’ expectations!
“Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is theirs or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.”

When you lose something or somebody you love!
“Tragedy always brings about radical change in our lives, a change that is associated with the same principle: loss. When faced by any loss, there’s no point in trying to recover what has been; it’s best to take advantage of the large space that opens up before us and fill it with something new.”

When you find it so hard to forgive!
“I forgive the tears I was made to shed, I forgive the pain and the disappointments, I forgive the betrayals and the lies, I forgive the slanders and intrigues, I forgive the hatred and the persecution, I forgive the blows that hurt me, I forgive the wrecked dreams, I forgive the stillborn hopes, I forgive the hostility and jealousy, I forgive the indifference and ill will, I forgive the injustice carried out in the name of justice, I forgive the anger and the cruelty, I forgive the neglect and the contempt, I forgive the world and all its evils… I also forgive myself. May the misfortunes of the past no longer weigh on my heart. Instead of pain and resentment, I choose understanding and compassion. Instead of rebellion, I choose the music from my violin. Instead of grief, I choose forgetting. Instead of vengeance, I choose victory. I will be capable of loving, regardless of whether I am loved in return, of giving, even when I have nothing, of working happily, even in the midst of difficulties, of holding out my hand, even when utterly alone and abandoned, of drying my tears, even while I weep, of believing, even when no one believes in me… So it is. So it will be.”

When you hit rockbottom!
“When I had nothing more to lose, I was given everything. When I ceased to be who I am, I found myself. When I experienced humiliation and yet kept on walking, I understood that I was free to choose my destiny.”

A Red Rose

You are like a Red Rose.
Red is a symbol of love, richness, wealth,
Prosperity and also a symbol of danger.
It is a colour of attraction.

But everyone look only at -
The colour and beauty of the rose.
But I have seen it as a self-protective form,
You have thorns to cover yourself.

I know you, as a symbol of love,
I know you, as a gift to a lover,
I know you, as a garland for God,
I know you, as a song in mourner's home.

You seem to be alone, and
A self-efficient flower, but
You are a flower who can fight,
And protect your honour.

Your thorns will not leave you,
To be hurt.
They protect you always.
They stand beside you.

You are not just a Red Rose,
You are a fighter,
You are strong,
And you are a blessed flower.
