My painful life

My painful life..... There are days, in my life was filled with emptiness My heart leaked from pain and washed away with sorrows When I was young, I did not get what I want in my life At times I was alone and felt with madness and my tears dropped and were wet into my pillow. My life had no stairs or ladder to climb up nor sailed smoothly to the destinations My life was hopeless and helpless like a man without liver Life, without life is nothing but shattered dreams At night, moonlight brightens me across the window but no one close enough to hug or care for my feelings Nothing can be done and I have to live with my destiny of life I watched others who had everything in their life but it did not bring me jealousy other than lost in my life Even a smile on my face was far away from me Happiness kept me away and darkness hugged me closely So many broken promises have played deep in my life and the outcome results was made me to feel so terrible They say ' You can live the life you were born to live' But what can I do when I was born there is no life in store for me Today, what I have learned is accept your life and live with it without counting the hatches for nothing.

    Ravi; This is a painful write. i can feel the pain. some of us don't have it easy. Still some say that our life is what we make of it. either way - life goes on and we go along with it. Thanks for sharing this part of your life. By your poetry I can tell you are close to God and for that you will be blessed.... Lucilla

    May tomorrow be the brightest of your days...I felt a heaviness as I read your lines--the darkness hugged me closely...so intense..so full of despair...focus poetry on dreams that can take flight in your lovely heart...many of the greatest poets of the holocaust have done such making them the greatest dreamers of all time! best to you, poet...gwendolen ps...I will be visiting your pages regularly to find the seeds from where your ink grows...

    Ravi, this sure is not very happy for you. I'm sorry about your painful life. It makes me wonder what makes it so!! I wish you great happiness finally to come into your life.
