Solitude - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Lead me by my hand
O, mother solitude
Into thy loving womb
Of solitude interior,
Into the anguish unknown,
Where praying buds
blossom into flowers divine.

    Optimism and hope are the fuel of a soul. I am a kind of person who looks for a silver lining. People do escape into terrible places in the search of happiness but again in the midst of pain and suffering we blossom like flowers with the continous and unshakable belief. Perfect. (Report) Reply

    I love this poem! I often escape into the darkness to seek the beauty that so many people don't realize is there. And here you are begging to be in solitude and point out that once there everything that is dark blooms and becomes beautiful! Wonderful poem poet. (Report) Reply

    Magnificent solitude fascinates me to understand the whole with its reasonable meaning. Yes, the poem has a certain meaning with depth. In third line, poet has illustrated the womb as 'terrible' one, but in sixth and seventh line we see poet again tells about a truth....Where praying buds / blossom into flowers divine. Here i am being very much confused about the womb of solitude interior. What the contrast the poet has expressed by using the word Terrible. The womb which is Terrible.....is it possible for a bud by praying, blossoming into divine flower! ! Perhaps poet can show us the right path by breeding another poem. Simply fantastic a piece of art..................10++

    Regards,
