Die To Live

My identity is questioned
My existence is questioned
Questioned to erase me
From this globe forever
By my own creators

My heart beat increased
I am really frightened
Felt lump in throat
I hadn't noticed tears
I looked for a hug

A hug for support
To back my identity
To back my existence
But I have no one
To support with hug

So I'm backing myself
In my well of loneliness
For my own existence
And my perishing image
In hands of a tyrant

I may lose my image
And existence forever
Whatever may happen
I will fight the tyrant
And will die with honor

So at least my name remains

Stand for something or you will fall for anything. We must take a stand when it comes to some things in life. A heroic poe. Thank you.
‘…I will fight the tyrant // And will die with honor…’ Staunch Faith in oneself is better than weak faith on God…, And your tyrant will go into oblivion…and you'll be immortal thro' death Ms. Nivedita Ten UK

'Gorantha deepam kondantha velugu chigurantha aasa jagamantha velugu' Your poem reminds me tha great song from Bapu's movie by Arudra. Yes! When noone to come to support u, you are very well there to support yourself. Well written poem
