And when I want to write something Words disappear , lines scream They get jumbled up Whenever I try to scribble Ceasing abruptly at my pen's golden nib I can't express my exact feelings I erase all , start again And again erase Feel restless and immense pain Sitting alone in solitude of nothingness Everything seems blank and troubled I stare at welkins height Remaining awake the entire night Moon , stars , all musings say goodbye with smile Night evanesces Dawn breaks with cacophony of life With waves of life when I pen down now Haikus obey the syllable count Metaphors and similies embellish like diamonds The dolours and sunshine bridge their gap at once With all the musings they converge and dance I relax and now my quill swirls With soul's outburst what you long for They are bound to adhere to your heart with love My poesies are like that ...
As night became day miracles unfolded My prayers became rays of sunshine I have long ways to go, miles and miles So I kept my lamplight burning with hope My heart desires to sail to distant lands My mind longs to touch the shores afar The whispers and whimpers of the past Have reached the waterbed deep down On their way up to the surface became Bubbles of joy floating happily along
It was yesterdays that made me stronger They made me hold on to the ropes tighter They taught me to let go of the despair That weighed me down and sunk my past The dawn right before the spreading sun Will always be the darkest, so I endured it With the oars of will and determination I sailed this ocean of life with wild tides And overcame the thunderstorms of fate
All the lonely waves and melancholy tides That accompanied me during my journey Kept me engaged, forgetting all the worries The way the tides danced in the moonlight Told me to fight back the dark with my light As I continue this journey in my lifeboat, Truth became my anchor, when the tides Calmed down, the waves whispered to me,
"Dear sailor Don't let the high tides shake you Don't let the dark world break you Morning will bring the sunshine Tomorrow you'll shine on your own"
