This is an inspiring ballad about a city of darkness where there is no happiness. The city marks one of the darkest times of our life, time when everything feels weak and we have no more strengths to move on..

I was lost in unknown land

A place I’d never been

The nameless place of darkness

Where evils ruled within

I could find people like me

Who were depressed and wept in sorrow

They said life has betrayed them

And got all happiness swallowed

Some people lived in this land

Others named the city “Black”

They said it is negative place

Where happiness simply lacks

It’s filled with scars and pain

The pain inevitable and inexplicable

But some angels told me with grace

That scars are always notable

“Black” may feel like hell

The place hated by all

Like drowning in deepest oceans

But was pathway to heaven afterall

The gateway may not be so pleasing

You may turn away from the road

But travelling across the city is meant

For legends who choose to soar

It is an exploration

Finding our inner strengths

Cause you don’t know how strong you are

Until it’s the only option left

When you find yourself in this city

When you feel lost in oblivion

Remember it’s city of dark

To help you make your own mark

Get up. Stand up and fight!

Work harder to travel across

In the other end of the city

People with strongest scars are born

So child realise the truth

We are given this life to live

To suffer pain and soar across

Cause we are strong enough to live

Find the shine within you

Cause you are lighthouse in the dark

And only in darkest skies you’ll find

The shine of brightest stars! ✨

  1. Truly beautiful as always Honey ✨😊. There is sadness in it but at the same time the poem also gives a ray of hope. What inspired you to come up with this concept ?

      Yea i do write such kinda poems.. which are true to life and gives a ray of hope 😊
      It’s just an imagination which stuck my brain. I wanted to just say that we consider black colour as evil and the ones belonging to wrong side, but it is important as well since there can’t be anything good if there isn’t anything bad. 😊❀

      Haha just a crazy imagination, as my favourite colour is black! πŸ˜‚ I wanted to change the way people thought that it represents evil, dark, and stuffs lol πŸ˜‰
      Thanks. I am happy you liked it! 😘❀

  4. The imagery of a lighthouse is so powerful. The one of the ballad is so strong.

    Beautiful. Very much so.

    I’m an uneducated yankee, though, really I read a poem once should it be spelled β€œchilde,” or am I incorrect?

      Thanks a lot my dear friend. And welcome to my website, seeing you here for the first time. 😊
      I am glad you liked my creation.. πŸ’•β€

      Yes ‘Childe’ is a word for child.. means the same. ‘Childe’ is used in old English texts so for sure you can spell it like that. You are correct dear friend 😊

      Thanks for this cause i also didn’t knew about the spelling. I just googled it haha! πŸ˜‰

      Hope you have a great day! β›…
      Keep smiling! πŸ™ƒ

        Are you Taya Kyle? I’m simply wondering, as your photograph, while alluring; reveals nothing.

        Hey friend. No I am not so great person! I am Honey Barapatre from India, well yea that’s my real name ..tbh lol.
        She is a big writer tho.. πŸ˜‰


      3. Robert Black says:

        She’s mother to the late Chris Kyle’s children, is what she is. Read American Wife first, since you’re a lady, then read American Sniper. You’ll see Jim DeFalice’s hard work as a ghostwriter, as well as learning about them; as people.
