I Walk Alone...! Poem by Aarzoo Mehek

I Walk Alone...!

Rating: 4.7

I smile till it starts to look fake
I laugh till my heart aches

I crave for my unfulfilled dreams
I wake up with heart wrenching screams

I breathe till I grasp to hold on to life
I walk alone on treacherous path with strife

I hold my head high in-spite of life's deceit
I struggle to survive fate's defeat

I try to drown my sadness in the cup of time
As the time marches with it's melodious chime

I hold on to little sunshine that warms my heart
As I look forward to life with a fresh new start

I wait for the package of surprises to unfold
As life still has something called faith to hold.

Hi Arzoo, Beautifully penned poem, excellently worded. But, more than the poetic beauty, i treasure your hope and extreme faith in Him. To hold one's head high in spite of life's deceit is extremely difficult especially when you are aloe! and extremely important! Top cede defeat is easy. To succumb to strife and pressure is common. But to survive, it demands lot of courage and will power. Your poem, I hope, will prompt many in that state to look up with hope. And the spiritual inclination you exude is marvellous. In the present day, where everybody is after material pleasures, spiritousness is rare to find. Thank you for sharing for everybody to read. Keep writing.
