You Have Got To Smile - Poem by Piyush Dey

In a dark summer night,
When I was crossing through a
path embraced by glum eerie trees,
with a half dejected face,
trying to console myself, as i said,
'happens sometimes, don't worry'
I saw a dot twinkle in the distance
down in the black grass,
As i came closer, i saw two, three,
then four, then ten, then hundreds
of such little twinkling dots
twinkle like the million stars on sky,
suddenly i was covered by thousands
of those little divine dots,
thin rays of light came and entered my heart.
i felt like i was covered by powerful
rays of wisdom,
But all of sudden, someone started
slapping me, again and again,
then the slaps started reverberating,
i couldn't see who it was,
i started crying and found that
those rays were going little by little,
i cried louder, the lights dimmed more,
i cried more louder and it was dark.
my heart beats started pounding like hell,
after sometime, as i stopped crying by myself,
i felt someone rubbing the tears off
my face, patting my head with its
gracious arms,
It felt lighter, my head,
something whispered around my ears
with its soft lovely voice,
'You haven't got to stop and weep,
rather, you have got to smile', then-
as i smiled, i saw that same little dot
flicker in the far dark,
i spranged towards it, smiling widely,
then i saw two, three,
then four, then ten, then hundreds
of such little twinkling dots
twinkle like the million stars on sky,
thin rays of light came and entered my heart,
i felt i felt like i was covered by powerful
rays of wisdom again.
