Somanathan Iyer


At Times


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

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
