A Song Of My Existence - Poem by Savita Tyagi

Today I sing just for my self
This music as natural as the breath I take
Doesn’t belong to pages of poetry
I sing not in memory of past
Or to behold the glorious future
I sing just to make this moment the happiest one
Today I find refuge in my words
To seek joy and to cast away the grief
This broken, rhythm less paean rising from the depth of my heart
Reveals a joyous existence
Like a curtain moving in soft breeze
Exposes the unknown and mysterious.
I sing to feel the taste of life
Like a little child sucking on his thumb
To feel his sweet existence.

    Feeling one's own existence has many methods, and singing or writing poetry is a beautiful way of it. A truly beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    A lovely poem Savita, great in diction and intense in feeling! Occasionally we have to sing, not to cheer anybody else, but ourselves! ! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem Savita, we should celebrate the joy of the moment rather than dwell on the past or think too much of the future. (Report) Reply
