To Do List - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

First thing on my To Do List
Was to take off the mark
Of fear and uncertanity
From my life
And keep questioning
The What, Why and How
And
Change the world
And try to discover
The reason
Of sad episodes of life
And why I felt like
Life was peeling me
In layers
And cold wind in wilderness
Was crushing
Against my face
And I was struggling
To hold back my tears
In the most painful moment
Of life.....
And in the middle of all
I hoped to find
A brief moment
Where I could hear
My own words echo
The sentiments
And Increased Hope.......

    even the Hebrew in the ancient time have done this point...its a flow of nature...that we have to know and remember what is going on in our lives..
    you have just awaken the silent ego of our life...Thank you..God bless

    Really admire the way you have expressed your feelings here:
    ...And in the middle of all
    I hoped to find
    A brief moment
    Where I could hear
    My own words echo...
    In the utter darkness of despair & pain, there always exists a 'ray of hope' when wisdom prevails!
    Thanks for sharing such an inspiring poem. A 10 from me!
