Empty Words

by Vyomi Malik
(Delhi, India)

Always think of the positive side,
No matter how strong the tide
Something will surely work out,
There can never, forever be a drought.
Empty words to give you solace,
Reality is an altogether different place
Here nothing comes for free,
A price tag for everything; don't you agree?
No amount of wishing better works,
Unless the fire you yourself stoke.
Like an avalanche crushing everything in its wake,
There are some things you can't unmake.
