highly doubt that you are okay,
Cause your smile does not conceal those red puffy eyes,
And the tight door of your room doesn’t make those shrill cries inaudible,
I understand if you have to cry, but you need to promise yourself that you’ll get up again and try.
I highly doubt that you are happy,
Cause the smile is clearly fake,
You are smiling just to fit in, just to forget everything that’s happened,
I understand if you need some space, but you need to promise yourself that you’ll not shut yourself forever and come out with a happy face.
I highly doubt that you did not feel angry,
It’s okay to feel as if you want to hit someone,
Cause every once in a while you can lose your calm too,
I understand the reason behind why you are being so snappy lately, but promise yourself that you’ll return back with poise completely.
I highly doubt that you don’t regret,
Cause your face shows that guilt and your eyes reflect that fear,
That feeling is hurting like a spear, unexpressed and stuck in your throat; strangling the life out of you,
I understand if you need to be alone, but promise yourself that you’ll move on because there are many bright future prospects to grab on.
It’s okay to get some negative feeling once in a while,
To balance the laws of nature,
Of course sadness can’t be given out but it can be transformed into happiness,
Cause matter is supposed to be conserved and feelings are supposed to felt and not reserved,
Believe, it’s not that difficult,
Every black cloud has a silver lining,
Maybe soon you’ll get to yours.

It is a very magnificent work.
It seems to me that the original difference is, written in Hindi.
