The Lost Strength

I was lost
in search of you
somehow made
my way through.
With lots of
strength and grit,
collecting myself
bit by bit.
Now I’ve started
to crawl
and soon I’ll
cross the wall.
Growing stronger
day by day,
I will make
my own way.

As the time
passes by,
I’m learning
again to fly;
without your help
and acceptance
marking my
utmost presence.
The will to
grow and succeed
and to fulfill
my deeds
I’m prepared
to fight again.
The lost strength
is regained.

Struggle

She was struggling all alone,

none could hear the silent groan.

Bruises, too deep….

scathed by some creep.

 

A solitary tear

trickled down the cheek,

as the onlookers

gave her a grotty peek.

 

Dejected and deprived of

love and care,

the situation was squicky

and full of despair.

 

Not a single noble soul

dared to make it right,

most turned their faces

after seeing her plight.

 

Waiting for a miracle

she looked up the sky,

hoping our Father in Heaven

will listen to her sigh.

 

With no desires left

where humanity stood bereft,

she decided to leave

with none to grieve.
