On the other side of rainbow

I stood still on the top of the mountain Gazing at the nature's colourful fountain Wondering what's behind this amazing rainbow I ventured curiously on to every high and low The Violet proudly presented the Valiance behind her Royalty. Indigo proved that Devotion yields Power and Dignity. Blue demonstrated that Wisdom is the outcome of Stability. The Prosperity, as Green proved, results from adventure. The colour of sunshine revealed that Hope fuels Survival. Orange disclosed the secret behind the joy of Freedom - Commitment. Red introduced Courage as the guiding force of Self-empowerment. I extrapolated these rainbow lessons to understand the essence of existence Then I was amazed to look at every bit of life's radiance On the other side of the rainbow of mother's love, there was labour. On the other side of rainbow of success, there was the waterfall of sweat. On the other side of the rainbow of sweet dreams, there was bloodshed. On the other side of the rainbow of independent thoughts, there was abuse. On every facet of life, only one side of colours is typically seen. But the brushes that paint them are surprisingly umpteen.

On the other side of the rainbow the pot of gold we find is ourselves. I enjoyed your poem.

You made me look at the rainbow ....and the rain that preceded it, in such a way that......I felt the pain throes before the rainbow! Most excellent writing. Swetha!

In your view from the top of the mountain, you see things most can't. I like the way you found a message on the other side of rainbow. Well written poem, Swetha.
