每個人的心中,都有一個黑暗的房間......

The Room

You've been in the room
For such a long time.
Dark and empty, it may seem.

The room that all people own
To shed tears and hide pain
Or some fear in between

You've been in the room
For endless time
People came
Yet you didn't let any light beam

The inner contradiction
Kept you in prison
Shadows over your emotion

When will you break free the feeling?
Let the sun inside shining
Will you be understanding?
Hope is already out there, waiting.
I guess we all have a dark room like this -
whatever happens in the room stays in the room eh!

Somehow the flow of this poem feels quite Chinese like (語感很中文)

Thank you for sharing though! :)
