Paints behind picture

Some say that the past was hard
others tell that the present has never been worse
despite so many miseries and tragedies
we survived, we are still alive
during the days when the sun was ashamed to shine
when everything became quiet and cold
everyone in the town started to contribute all what they had
they lent all little hope what was left behind
they gave their share of care all what they could
their warm hugs and reassuring smiles
all this little lot, added up to a lot
becoming sufficient to wipe away hopelessness
everyone did some little act of kindness
that brought back all the greatness
these are the paints behind picture
whose colours have never faded away
whose colors have never become pale

Harsh words and hard circumstances seemed so big
as if they were a tall wall reaching the sky
blocking all the hope and happiness
even in the years of silence and darkness
when it felt that there was no one left to listen
some voices never stopped singing
when it felt that there was no one left to read
some writers never stopped writing
and some still kept setting great examples
reigniting the old charms, making the present worth celebrating
violence came to an end by the return of innocence
everyone did some little act of kindness
that brought back all the greatness
these are the paints behind picture
whose colours have never faded away
whose colors have never become pale
