Walking in the midst of nothingness around
Not a whistle to be heard, not a cry, not a sound

An ocean of tears forcing its way
Is a blessing for many, as they say

The trauma, the fear of being alone
Preferred anonymity, yet clearly shone

The reasons to smile were now a distant reality
As it always is for a hapless commodity

The wires of distress so closely entwined
Was it a possibility my stars would shine?

The hardships, for life, I was destined to befriend
It seemed would go with me to the very end

As here was a lonesome entombed in calmness
Where the only companion to prize was darkness

Never in my dreams had it scrolled my mind
That beyond my world was a world to find

But why should I cry when there’s none to listen
After all every beginning needs an ignition

As long as I live my heart shall keep pounding
As peculiar as it may seem to me astounding

For the caravan of life must, surely, walk its line
A line so erratic yet so sublime

With life and death now merely apart
The choices at hand were amazingly stark

But here I was still walking against the odds
In hope of Thou, I live Oh God

    Habib! Your poem is full of gloom. It touches the heart. In verse form there are negligible rhyming imperfections in few verses. You may like to edit them. Welcome to the fraternity of PoetrySoup. I am sure you will benefit from the members' educated comments. -Mohammad
