Lifewards - Poem by Sowmya Sundaram

Nightmares and Nonsense
Broken dreams and ghosts from the past,
And love like beads scattered on the thread of life
Joined together in the hope of comfort somewhere
Lonely legs that walk someplace, unknown to the depths of minds which crave for more
Littleness in some thoughts and actions
Laziness in loving and living
Despair is all that fills the bucket beneath my body
Hope it overflows,
Let it into seas of sanity that will clean them
Let it into books of wisdom that will soothe them
Into the dreams of children that will purify them
Into my mother's bosom of love
Into the beauty of things
Let it Overflow into the depths of my soul
Where one day solace i will find
