Deep Within

Problems come to mend us
But not to break us
Hardships occur not to worry us
But to make us strong
We get betrayed so we could realize
What people are from inside
Curtains of darkness fall on us
To force us to search for light
Lies are told to us
So we may find the truth
Sadness comes to us to make us
Fight for our own happiness
Fear comes in us to make us brave
Failure takes place in our lucks
So we may work hard for success
Selfishness takes control over us
To make us kind
Things get lost so we may find them
Time runs from our hands
So we may run for it
Our past goes away so the present could come
And the present also gets lost for the future to come
And at last, the future comes
So that life could go on
And our life goes on
So that we could live
But all of this is meaningless
Unless we realize it
Deep within our heart.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
