Dawn! - Poem by Deepti Agarwal

Why is it so dark here
Why can't my right see my left
Why can't I hear anything
Why the dark Lords are
- holding me tight.

Scaring me to my bones
sending chill through my spine
air is so brittle here
castle of my dreams
- has now crumbeld.

Ah! Look! A Ray of Light
I know after the deep dark
comes the lovely twilight
there is nothing to be scared off
- dawn is about to shine!

    This poem will increasingly dawn on people. The demand for
    controlling the commanding heights will grow. The difficulties
    one meets, will resolve by themselves with advancements. One
    should always proceed and light will dawn with shine and
    increasing clearness on ones paths.....

    Every night scares
    Every dawn dares

    A feeling felt within every 24 hour cycle
    Its a great feeling, a nice realisation
    Its nice, you brought it into PH.

    Good one. Enjoyed the read.

    Daring write
    every thought of it
    expressed what is true
    people become confuse
    talk much but understand little
    it is wise to understand self first!

    Oh this night is so scary and dark
    It is gnawing my vitals like a shark

    soon my life will be filled with joyous sparks............
    Good Work..............
