Bitter Life - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

Don't feel stuck or lost in the dark
For life has silver linnings and marks
That we need to dig and bring out
To tear the dreadful layers of doubt

For life has struggles, depressions and blues
Where you've to learn to overcome hues
And allow yourself to grow and survive
In this bitter and painful journey of life

Just remember you'll be wounded many times
And you'll be forced to sing anger's rhyme
So don't feel poisoned by the bitterness of today
For life will bring you peace in your way

Just remember there's a purpose of every life
That's why God has sent us here to survive
So try to dig the truth and the answers dear
And find the secret hidden in each life's layer

And use your wisdom, your love and hope
And powerful vision to come out of this mope
And make memories on which to survive
For that's the main purpose of this bitter life.

    As usual this poem of Seema Chaudhary gives us a moral lesson, the poem possesses sublime beauty and flow. The lines

    Just remember you'll be wounded many times
    And you'll be forced to sing anger's rhyme
    So don't feel poisoned by the bitterness of today
    For life will bring you peace in your way

    Are the direct pouring out of the poetess’ soul, it is life that imparts pain and them embalm the injuries. The poem shows how to endure odds of life on the way to achieve our purpose we have been sent for. Nice effort, language is smooth and there is natural flow in the lines. The poetess wants to convey more than said in the poem.
