Somanathan Iyer


Desperate Prayers


Days and weeks devoured by Time
Months and years merged with Time
Underwent miseries all these times bygone
Living here I am like a lamp in the storm

Failures and fatigues rebukes and refusals
Flips and flops disgrace and dishonors
Shadowed my life in one way or other
Leaving me in shambles shameless to admit

The journey so far long and thorny
Tired I am and exhausted to move
The journey beyond how long but scary
Travel to continue hoping for a miracle

What went wrong reasons are many
Compulsions, convictions, fears,
Hesitations, egos and sentiments
Played their part in puncturing my dreams

Many a wrong steps at a few right times
Fear to venture at crucial junctures
Never came the Luck to make an exit
None to be blamed as I own the same

Prayers I make for strength to withstand
Prayers I make for bearing the pains
Prayers I make to live with honor
Puzzled I am whether God could hear!

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
