Life Is Not To Weep But To Enjoy / - Poem by Aftab Alam

I am broken –scattered - thought,
Just trying to gather,
Alone, on this earth; alone,
I can’t say together,

I am a shimmering dream of the wreck
Who sunk deep into darkness,
A fire slowly turning to ashes; heck
With its light; the brightness,

I am half burnt twisted log,
Trying to be burnt completely,
Bare footed on thorny road; no clog,
I am bleeding heartily,

Oh! The pain of being born is full of joy,
Life is not to weep but to enjoy

    A stark contrast of living through turmoil and pain, thought being broken and scattered.
    Yet the 'pain of being born is full of joy, Life is not to weep but to enjoy' Very intense poem,
    Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn.
