My Own World (after Maya Angelou)


If you all leave me alone
And go away to a distant land
I shall not fear or blame any one
Still I will live fully in my own world

If you all throw me down
And tear me up hundred times
I shall not beg pardon
Or break down in tears
At the bottom- line of life
Beautifully I shall gather there
And prepare a picnic for myself

If you all want me to see in despair
And take away from me all the lights
I shall not be disappointed
Nor shall I express any indignation
Delightfully in the dark room
I shall wash off all the negatives
And make a lot of photos of life.

    Poetically it is very balanced write up...the diction is consistently lucid...but thematically it seems a bit personal.though i dont think ppl are negativ abut u...over all it speaks for strength.... (Report) Reply

The world is full of meat and drink,
