A Battle Real

A Battle Real

Her delicate heart grips with pain
Amidst gaiety, hushed laments
Smiles so unreal she did feign
Her resentments slowly augments

Exquisite joy of motherhood
Loses amid cacophony
In waves of regrets, she did brood
Lullabies were mere baloney

In life’s most difficult moments
equipoise she tried to maintain
Edificing false battlements
Essence and entity abstain

Below layers of serene calm
Troubled mind forged umpteen battles
Darkness was now like soothing balm
Far away from sounds of rattles

Beseeching for some sympathy
Seeking cure for predicaments
A non-judgemental empathy
Loving shower of endowments

Postpartum depression is true
Never shun signs of agony
