A Knife Behind Me. - Poem by TADASHA TRIPATHY

A knife behind me
With a cover of smile
Makes me aware
How strong am I?
Whispering sounds
Dancing around
Make me aware
How able am I?
The environment behind
Often pokes at, that present in front
May be not to pass a way
May be to make me aware that
The while of time never stops
Neither stopped before me
Nor can be stopped
Even after me.

    A thoughtful poem, whether irrespective of a knife, whisper or environment, they all alert you about the stumbling side of the life's path so that mentally you get strong enough to move forward boldly and convincingly. (Report)Reply
