Today's Twilight


On sullen winds sighs and screams
Today’s blotted twilight creeps
Torments the darkness weaves and weaves
A bang, a blast, another yet another
Hearts parched hands smother
Nature’s whip cracks and cracks
How long to bear Fate’s whacks?

    When Nature's whip lashes fall on us, when blasts and bangs echo from every corner and thus when continually plagued by torments from nature and man, we wonder how long we can brave all these whacks! ! Life has lost its brightness and is blurred by a twilight! ! A poem pfofound and subtle! ! (Report) Reply

    Outcome of deep pondering over the perplexity of life.... Everything moves in mysterious way, where, why and what for, no one knows...
    This is, in fact, a tangle to those who think about as Walpole says Life is a comedy for those who think... And tragedy for those who feel
    Nice write, I loved reading it..
