Anarchy ii


I have been searching all this while;
miles n miles,
I know not where i lost my smiles...

My heart's been over brimmed with fears;
years n years,
Oh God! where i have lost my tears...

My soul's been groping since the birth;
on skies n earth,
I'm flustered where i lost my mirth...

I daily shriek to shake the skies;
twice n thrice,
do try to cry, but where are cries...

I have been trying to kill the pain;
but all in vain,
M y God distill some blessed rain...

O Lord! do help me change my mind;
You Just n Kind!
so rest n peace my soul may find...

    The solution lies within yourself and no external element is likely to extend a helping hand to dry out your tears of eternal pain experienced.Your agony has a touch of glory and it is what makes you a poet within. Keep sharing your feelings like this and take it for granted that we are sailing in the same boat. (Report) Reply

    i have a question.
    The title is anarchy, but in this poem, what i felt was, you are trying to find the old you because of a metamorphosis, and forgive me if i am offensive, how is this anarchist? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
