Overcoming A Night - Poem by aung si myanmar

A sun is blocked by an accident.
My soul shocks and is almost dead.

The sky of moonless night
Consoles me without might.

With the aid of eerie silence,
I hide inner wounds in deepest chest.

I pack my broken heart in tight
In the handkerchief of shameful pride.

Under the gossips of pole star,
I wear a necklace of tears.

Even at the moment of star falling,
No chance to pray and sing.

Twin weak knees start to demonstrate
Not to keep standing up with faith.

Now..., I put the dark behind,
And escape from midnight blind.

For the unfamiliar light of dawn,
Like a melodic bird in tunes
Which flies to balmy blooms,
I'd better create greatest fortunes.
