I've seen life


I've seen life,
A life clear like glass, but had stains of solitudes,
a life with unbiased pains and several frustrating multitudes.
A life with liars and filthy circumstances causing deep wounds,
a life with intimacy of knowns who later turned to hounds.

I've seen life,
a life with dreams of comfort and gatherings of childhood sensations,
a life that turned to coterminoused paths leading to desperations,
a life that had gifts of sorrows of bounded relations,
a life that demanded responses, not caring about my limitations.

I've seen life,
a life that cheated me till I had not felt the worse,
A life that the cataclysms to feed over me, granted as curse.
a life saluting the mightiest who presented lavish cruelty for me,
A life which made me to beg my peace, wish heaven could see.

I've seen life,
a life placing threats to make me learn the dearths of swarms,
A life that sucked me up, when no one held me in their arms.
A life which gave me unexpected to face and grow,
a life that broke me down and tremored me up never to bend or bow.

I've seen life,
a life with beloved too who took me up from sin,
a life that helped me to sniff the truths lying beneath skin.
A life that forced me to realize everything the near, what I could never do
in sane,
may be that was another way to find my self again.

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
