My Childhood Poem16

Rating: 4.5

Fear and sorrow
My life-time companions everyday
They exist today an' will tomorrow
Day and night with me they stay.

Happiness like the clouds in sky
One moment shower smiles few
Then away they rush an' fly
Leaving behind tears a dew.

I remember my first fears
Ghosts, devils, rats an' roaches.
A slight noise in dark I hear
Hailed dreadful images to approach.

Then the fears of reality
No fairy tales, no magic wands.
Life's sorrowful history since eternity
Shattered dreams slipping off hands.

Fear of being vulnerable
As daughter, sister, mother, wife
All bleeding souls by man's ego
Each turn a two edged knife.

The first glimpse of sorrow
My own home a chest of pain.
Nowhere happiness to borrow
Ignore or fight, all in vain.

My life's like a museum of fears
And a vast rainbow of sorrow
Every bend a different shade appears
So was yesterday, is today, will be tomorrow.

Still don't know why I keep on my strife
With the eternal companions of my life.

Topic(s) of this poem: fear
This poem was written by me when one day as teenager I realised that magic wands are not real and my home was not a dreamland....the reality was very painful and I did not know how to cope with it....

Quiet an interesting read. But I was hoping you could re-arrange the lines. Its not properly arrange and could be mistaken for a prose. But like I said, its an interesting piece!

A very touching write.... the shock of a teenager as she steps into a world of harsh realities from a world of fairy tales and magic wands! It is felt in every line!
