An Inspiration

There is no time,
But the one you grasp.
There is no destiny,
But the one you pursue.
There is no history,
But the one you alter.
There is no freedom,
But the one you sacrifice.
There is no dream,
But the one chase.
There is no imagination,
But the one you feel.
There is no idea,
But the one you conquer.
There is no memory,
But the one you relish.
There is no hope,
But the one you find.
There is no prayer,
But the one you believe.
There is no promise,
But the one you fulfill.
There is no happiness,
But the one you share.
There is no faith,
But the one you protect.
There is no comfort,
But the one you find.
There is no peace,
But the one you nurture.
There is no pain,
But the one you fight.
There is no fear,
But the one you overcome.
There is no courage,
But the one you build.
There is no help,
But the one you discover.
There is no success,
But the one you let go.
There is no evil,
But the one you purify.
There is no trust,
But the one you strengthen.
There is no solitude,
But the one you carry within.
There is no sorrow,
But the one you enlighten.
There is no power,
But the one you create.
There is no escape,
But the one you survive in.
There is no reward,
But the one you deserve.
There is no fate,
But the one you form.
And there is no love,
But the one that lies within you.

-Dedicated to Ms.Saeeda Imtiaz, one of the most extraordinary and inspiring souls that still light the darkness in the world, a shining star, a true friend and mentor for eternity.
May your light spread far and wide till Mortality breaths its last.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
