Have You Felt This Way?


Standing up for rights, invites many a dark stormy days.
To tolerate in silence, brings in heartaches anyways..
When the tides of life gets rough, like in the vast ocean..
Life's journey overflows with many a variable emotions
Clinging to the streak of lights, with hopes of many a peace
To sweeps away the darkness and for turbulence to cease.
Making misery to one’s life for just another’s satisfaction.
Is Hard to comprehend, stooping so low is it of existence? ?
Such indignant attitude, that dwells in one’s uneasy mind
Is a cowardly response, that makes one insensitive and blind…

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
