Unsolved Problem

I believe, we all have 
one unsolved problem in life, 
a dark forest where we are always lost. 

For a few, that may be a secret 
which hides like a grenade in the pocket 

For a few that may be a maniac foe 
who picked us just for fun 

For a few, that may be the mediocrity 
which dances on the tunes of our dear ones 

For a few that may be the parental toxic Warfield
into which we helplessly personified 

For a few, that may be the spring of a lifetime in
which we can bloom, but can't exude fragrance.
