Smiles & Scars

Rating: 4.5

i cursed god for my fate,
i cursed myself for being always late.

i hated god for giving me tears,
i hated myself for living in fears.

i questioned god 'why such to me? '
i questioned myself 'am i not sturdy? '

my life was doomed in darkness,
without a glimpse of happiness.

as i grew up i came to know,
god is high and me so low.

whatever happened, all had a cause.
so i moved on without pause.

i was changed with life's turns,
as paper into ashes when it burns.

i travelled long, walked with the stars,
realised, life gives both smiles & scars.

Life becomes beautiful, when we learn to heal those scars with a smile. Keep penning, it repairs all your scars and bring back that smile.
