My Fall Is Not Your Rise

In the vast ocean of life you laugh at me
Completely forgetting the fact that things move in a circle

And in a wave
After the low comes the high ebb

But theories after theories
You put forth explaining the causes of my down fall

You know these are nothing
But on my wounds work like green chili and salt

Moreover, let me again
Make you remember that my fall is not your rise
And for your journey you have to walk
For your rise you have to work

Yet you may go clapping your hands
To see my fall
But let me make you remember
Where you have been when I used to stand tall?

You may go hot and cold
Seeing upon my decline
But let me make you remember
After hitting the bottom I will bounce back

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
