At Times - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

At times I am sane
treating life as a bane
welcoming end as a boon

At times I am lost
Brooding over lapses of past
And future looming fraught

At times I feel shy
With nothing in favor to vie
Hopes proving pie in the sky

At times I gather courage
Ignoring problems as mirage
Confidence scoring a message

    Wonderful poem. Each of the feelings is simply natural and finally you gather courage to gain confidence. Please read my poem 'One Brick at a Time' when you have time - it complements your poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    We all experience periods of pessimism and optimism, or ups and downs. Well expressed here Somanathan. (Report) Reply
