Strength

When you feel the sky is falling down,

And there is nowhere left that you can go.

When you feel the walls closing in,

And the stars appearing out of reach.

It is in times like these that you must look within.

That is where your strength resides,

Hidden from the world,

And unknown to thine self;

For how could you have ever known?

The strength of your own strength.

Does a star ever know how bright it can burn?

When it is finally reaching its end.

Does a note know of its power,

To break the deepest of silence?

-Ayesha

  1. Wow! Such an inspiring poem Ayesha. Very true when our situations show us nothing, we must seek within. Nice analogy with a star and a note. Good work.

    Happy Independence day. Jai hind. šŸ™‚
