You Are..

You are the fuel of life

many are deprived of

to drive life ahead to live

When hope sucks out

of life’s coarse surface.


You are the oxygen of life

When heaps of problems

suffocate to breathlessness.

You become the solution

before problems ruin fully.


You are the very spark

that flame the desire

And remain as burning fire

until one win and acknowledge

that nothing can defeat forever.


You are the sun, rise as dawn

when the night looks eternal

and the darkness scare deeply.

You are the sole divine light

that acts as a guiding star.


You are a unique pen

many thrive to have

to rewrite their destiny

when dreams get orphaned

and life challenge as mock.


Your are the fire of life

that everyone have inside

but it never gets lit easily

unless one is starved fully

and the hunger eats you wholly.


You are the gift of life

You are the vision of life

You are the wisdom of life

You are the substance of life

You are the very energy of life

The whole world know you as INSPIRATION!

    A vibrant and lively work whose cadences bear all the hallmarks of an inspiring soliloquy .

    EDITORIAL NOTE:-( For the benefit of the author )
    I am not altogether convinced that the poem’s last 3 lines actually work.It seems to me that they are a late addition which require a re-think and readjustment. ” But ” , ” But alas ” and ” And ” are feeble and detract from the entirety of the work. Avoid BUT,avoid AND.

    it is a beautiful stream flowing till last two lines… I guess you wanted to take it beyond into a vast sea..
