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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
