The Pebble

Posted by Soumya at 5:19 PM

Random thoughts flooding my head
Seeing colors everywhere, blue, green and red
The black and white haze seeming to lift
Life seems wonderful almost like a gift

You do right, you do wrong
In the end, it only makes you strong
Forgive, but do not forget
Happiness is not that hard to get

You need to make it happen
Life is not always pixies and elves
Cos a soul that has not suffered
Would never fully know itself

Even from the darkest alley
You can still see the stars
Smile, pray and love
This will help heal the scars

The purpose of humanity
Is the meaning of life
At least within yourself
Let go of the strife

While in a storm
Don't let go of the boats
Only while you're sinking
You'll know that hope floats

Just because you have it all
Doesn't mean you have all the power
The best of fragrance
May still come from the ugliest flower

We all have our faults and foibles
After all we're just human
The least we can do, is to live up to it
And try to conquer the inner demon

Love must be, free like a bird
Give it space and it'll never bid adieu
The more you give it away
The more it comes back to you

Stand by your thoughts
Never let it go away
Make sure when you kneel
Its only to pray

Things will not be smooth always
There will be conflict and collision
Through hardship and misfortune
We usually have the clearest of vision

Do not be discouraged
We all have our share of trouble
You'll never make it to the top of the mountain
If you whine, while you step on a pebble

"You do right, you do wrong
In the end, it only makes you strong"

Absolutely stunning and brimming with meaning yet so simple and subtle, This is poetry at its best.
