Unflinching soul

I am worried I am in despair I am tensed I am in low spirits My song sounded melancholic My thought turned pessimistic My emotion became lifeless My life seemed purposeless My heart lost its rhythm Cold shivers rippled my blood My pulse missed its beat Vacuum nested every nerve of my head. I started my journey from somewhere to reach nowhere I found myself toiling in the sands of dreary nightmare I continued my cruise on the shoreless ocean Searching for a home in an unknown destination Life seemed to be a battlefield and I transformed into a weaponless warrior Fighting with an unknown enemy for a mysterious reason Tears were racing with the valley of blood Anguish supplanted the graveness of a flash flood Having fed with very little hope of survival I gravely waited for the life's arrival. Sailing unchaperoned in the gigantic world, I realised that life is a personalized game and the triumph embosoms the unflinching souls.

Rightly said Connie. Diving deep into ourselves sometimes gives answers to many questions. :)

I believe everyone has a warrior inside them Pixie and he comes out when situation demands :) This poem applies to all those warriors including You and Me. :)

Your feelings poured straight from your soul onto a page always delights me. This is one of those times. I adore this line: "I started my journey from somewhere to reach nowhere". I hope my subconscious does not try to steal it and make her own poem. Down Trixie, down!
