Before The Fall - Poem by Abhishek Shah

My demons within, waiting to prey on me.
Defying all prayers only in efforts, the light, I see.
No option I have, yet in dilemma always!
Though the decision I have made but the heart still sways.
Drown yourself in that amber liquid, or so they said!
A clear answer to the world so turbid, or so the truth is read!
Words I have many, and often so foolishly used!
Precious is their value, now lost can only be rued.
In the mirror I search, to see that missing spark.
But I see an average life, gradually being swallowed by the dark!
Faint voice of hope I hear, among the living they call.
Clinging to the faith in myself, I cross this bridge before the fall.
