The Light

This fear runs deep
	And I’m rotting to the core,
My somnolent heart sinks me down
	And I’m so distant from the shore.

Sometimes I blissfully sit by the window
Just to watch the time pass me by,
And the sudden arrest of despair jails all of my hope 
As I wretchedly loose my alibi.

Dear Angel of mercy
	How do I turn my light on?
How do I foresee 
	All the precious moments that are already gone?

In the midst of pain and despair
	All I have left but truth and dare,
I know life ain’t fair
	But don’t know if I care.

Still, I want to dive deep into the Holy
	And rise up spirit high,
I want to light up my darkness
	And noble my days before I die.

(C) Obaidur Rahman. Published in the poet’s debut book of English poetry titled “The Mystic Inferno” in 2012.

    The depth of your cries are heard in this poem - I am sure your creator will answer, just be willing to accept it. If you wake up tomorrow with a task. That means the answer was no.
