My Childhood Poem16
Fear and sorrow
by soulful heart
My life-time companions everyday
They exist today an' will tomorrow
Day and night with me they stay.
Happiness like the clouds in sky
One moment shower smiles few
Then away they rush an' fly
Leaving behind tears a dew.
I remember my first fears
Ghosts, devils, rats an' roaches.
A slight noise in dark I hear
Hailed dreadful images to approach.
Then the fears of reality
No fairy tales, no magic wands.
Life's sorrowful history since eternity
Shattered dreams slipping off hands.
Fear of being vulnerable
As daughter, sister, mother, wife
All bleeding souls by man's ego
Each turn a two edged knife.
The first glimpse of sorrow
My own home a chest of pain.
Nowhere happiness to borrow
Ignore or fight, all in vain.
My life's like a museum of fears
And a vast rainbow of sorrow
Every bend a different shade appears
So was yesterday, is today, will be tomorrow.
Still don't know why I keep on my strife
With the eternal companions of my life.
