Bright Future


At the midday of my life,
I take a glance at my rear view mirror
behind me I see speed humps, curves and road blocks
I come into cognizance that there has been a delay
time had evaporated gradually
inspite of the delay, I won't give up

The melancholy evaporates like dew at sunrise
the mist of confusion subsides gradually
through my window with my head out, I wave goodbye
goodbye to midlife crisis

Through my windscreen I see a glitter
my future is so bright I need sunglasses
my blurred vision regains its former strength
fresh fire is ignited in my bones.
with a new zeal I step on the accelerator up to the hilt

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
