Is This I? - Ii - Poem by C. P. Sharma

(Part - II)
Born of the parents
With noble life style;
Devotion to divinity,
Living life with zest
Giving life the best
Was their life's fest!

Born in sand-dunes,
Its sand never clings,
It cleans, is pure as gold,
Impurities doesn't hold,
Weaves waves of eternity
In your mind and mould.

Played in heat wave's
Burning fume,
In all sternness
My boyhood bloom,
In an oasis my study resume,
A new life role I was to assume.

Literature, my first love,
Won't last even when I die,
Later came Economics,
Bread and butter of life,
It helped me waging war,
Against sweat and strife.

Then came a pretty gal,
To take care of my life
Softly she took me
To the land of rivers five
Since then into love
I had deep, deeper and the deepest dive.

There bloomed lotus
In the pond of our life,
Three sweet daughters,
A son sober and sonorous;
I had in life values all pious,
I set on life without any bias.

Thus started smooth sailing
On the ocean of life,
Reached many dream lands,
Many cross roads divide,
But always a Light House
Right direction to provide.

I am now struggling
To reach the shore,
I have all hopes,
Still I am not sure,
Whether I shall sink
Or arrive the shore!

Waiting for the chariot
To take to new land,
Where face to face
My Pilot does stand,
He will be my counsel,
My actions will defend.

I shall once again
With my pilot unite.
This will be the end
Of my long, long flight.
ONE with Bliss I will be,
The otherness won't bite.

    What a harmonious and rich life! You described it in a fine manner - flowing naturally like a high water river full of life and giving life by its course. I enjoyed the poem very much. Easy for reading, relaxing. You are a wise and lucky man. Best regards, onelia (Report)Reply

    This is the best autobiography I have ever read in the form of a poem.You reminded me at once Tennyson's Crossing the bar and Ulysess and Browning's prospice, The Last Ride Together and, of course, Rabbi ben Ezra.This poem has a touch of sincerity, honesty and curiocity to tell about the self in such a lovely life.Your life is an account of that success that others only wish for.Your looking forward to the new world demonstrates your optimism and gives inspiration to others to think in the same away.It is completely different from the part 1 of Is IT I? Really a true Autobiography of a successful and fully satisfied Personality.I am Adding it to my favourite poems list (Report)Reply
