Wading Bird

There is hope even in darkness, that sun will rise.
There is hope even in failure, that I'll stand up again.
There is hope even in wrongdoing, that I maynot repeat again.
There is hope even in fighting the low, for time never remains same.

Life is to live even if it seems hopeless
For a seed to germinate it first dies
Then bear nestling for others.

Yet more is ahead
I miss not even one indeed
It's my life, I'm the boss
Time will change bringing vibrant clauses.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by the poem of Aarzoo Mehek's poem Penence. No one likes bad times. They are painful. But after every pain there is a beautiful happiness that no one can steal. Even a mother gets her baby after her toughest stuggle with pain to embrace her baby.

    Very legitimate reasoning but the one who is at the receiving end doesn't normally get the counseling sessions so as to neutralise the gravity of multiple negative factors afflicting a person. Please look into the situation of a illiterate farmer whose crop has failed and he finds himself hard-pressed to repay his loan instalment and at the same time manage his household expenses. Thanks for the poem.

    हर रात के बाद आती सुबह हैं,
    कुछ खट्टी, कुछ मीठी यादों को लाती सुबह हैं

    रात जितनी मर्जी काली हो,
    पर आती एक नई सुबह हैं
    एक बेहतरीन कविता एक बेहतरीन कवयित्री के द्वारा
