Jackfruit Song

I am running out of words
But this heart is still
as heavy as jackfruit
but with no sweetness
as you can see in my smile.
i smile now like a cactus in desert
waiting for nothing but a hot breeze
I sleep like an aged man
with his dreams in his lip
I eat like a soldier
who is heading for a battle
I walk like a homeless man
who knows no wife no siblings
no daughter is waiting for him
I cry without tears
like a crow learning to smile.
I fought with every vein inside me
when i had friends to clean me up
Now i fight like an earthworm
Oh My heart is so heavy now
like a jackfruit
