Well Wisher

by Pooja Nair

His eyes are lowered, his shoulders droop

His heart is heavy, his breath is too

Like a fish in your palm his heart struggles

but you know not where his sea is

Like a bird in your fold his wings hesitate

but you know not where his sky is.

 

Show him that even the sun must rise

Show him that even the moon must play the clouds

help him win without yet see within

Can you mould him yet not make him

help him find a form his own

Can you shore his feet to the ground

yet coax his eye to the sky..
