How Gloomy I Am - Poem by arshad arshad

How gloomy i am

On the tossing water i float
Like a straw shredded from the field
Unknow of its own destination

How gloomy i am

Like a lost dear strayed from its herd
Tracing no track nor any shelter

How gloomy i am

Like a young bird with pinions broken
Fluttering in vain, taking no flight

How gloomy i am

Like a bud with no petals
Lying in the bed, following the wind

How gloomy i am

Like a fallen yellow leaf
Displaced from its native home
Rusting its pain in deaf ears
