Down But Not Defeated - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Broken but not defeated

I am broken at heart
I don't feel it as part
Life did not have good start
Yet I live and try to look smart

I am devoted to literature
That is only mission for future
I am quit confident and sure
I shall see it stands as pure

I see the life as rainbow
My feelings rise up and grow
I sink deep in it and flow
With only simple wore to go

How come one can smile?
Pass the happiness and joy meanwhile
Cry in heart but can't expose weakness
Love to keep red shine always on face

I was a happy person
Blessed with handsome and only son
So patriotic in mind and ready to serve
I bow head for him as he really deserve

Happiness doesn't stay for long
Any time calculation can go wrong
Luck would never favor me I believed
On many counts I was deceived

I don't lament but same time can't love
As my passion forces me to drive
To be lone and ideal person
With whatever may be the reason?

How fate can prove so cruel?
Son has been martyred but done well
Life, as if, has come to standstill
Yet some thing forces me with strong will

If I can be good human being
I shall strive for it and purposefully sing
I shall search for a companion to be with me
Make me to the height and glory and prove shade under tree

    Your poem conveys the realities of life and although the trials and suffering come, it does not rain everyday.
