khadija shaker

At dusk I'll rise

You are overwhelmed and frustrated within,
You always just seemed to be on my side
But inside of your heart lies,
The untold truth that is
Shinning on your eyes.

You always want to put me down
Trying hard to decrease my happiness
Gossiping about me is meaningless
But still at dusk I’ll rise

Those teardrops are heavy to fall
From my fragile eyes
This word is slowly killing me
Whispering around my self
But still like dust i’ll rise

Do you want to write me down in history with your lies?
Weak heart, knowing-less mind
You are trying to spill blood on my dreams
Unbelieving the words i say inside
But still like fog I’ll rise

Wanting me to feel that my life is almost over
There is no point of living
But still like dawn I’ll rise

I’ll fly
Far from those mind
Far to inhabitant word
With those broken wings
I’ll rise
I’ll rise
I’ll rise

I’ll continue flying
Till I reach the oasis
Where the luster sparked
My intense emotions building up
My feeling is sky hope to reach
As I walked out and in
I’ll forever rise

    An inspirational poem, written with conviction and insight to capture the essence of the piece. A well articulated piece with a powerful message - FAITH. FAITH KEEPS THOSE THAT KEEP THE FAITH - Mother Teresa. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    Self belief is at issue here Khadija.We must be true to ourselves.Have to be strong in adversity.No matter how badly we are treated, keep our dignity and strength of will to succeed.Your poem describes determination and the will to come out on top no matter what..A great write Khadija..well done.
