LIFE


At times our lives are set to change
Through no fault of our own range,
A change you know will break your heart
And keeps it pieces miles apart.
But what is more important to bear?
To live a life in fear!
Or change and live the life you should
With so many mysteries you never understood.
Everyone needs freedom
To live the life they should without fearsome!
They need to find their inner selves
And makes everything feels good themselves!
One may not get to have that innermost peace
Or to have its whole life all in one piece
Even right before the eyes
reality hits so hard and cold like ice
Fears keeps erasing every smile
And they never stop the torment not for a while
The body keeps living as the blood flows
Longing for that deep warm and inner glow
Patiently waiting for the arrival of a new dawn
To see the bright light from the sun
sadly sometimes it doesn’t work like that
Cos of the pain and sorrows in our heart!
They end up leading to our lonely lives
A life Of past regrets and lies
We tremble in fear today
Because tomorrow is an uncertain day
Not knowing what it will bring
Or where it pendulum will swing
We look into the future for hope
That will make life easy to cope
Looking for a life not stuck on the shelf
But a dream to see the reflection of your true self
Taking strength from true friend
Who will be there till the end
for life is a journey of self discovery
And everything that happens to us some how leads to our life recovery
Despite all our troubles coming from all channel
There is a bright and sparkling light at the end of the tunnel

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
