It Happens

The life we live,
Is a queer mixture,
Of bits & pieces ,
Thrown together.

The dear are often,
Torn away,
While peripherals,
Will hold sway.

Helplessly caught,
In  throes of fate,
We seldom manage,
To hold the spate.

From far away,
A tide will come,
To wipe out all,
And leave the scum.

In this very scum,
You may find a shell,
The pearl inside,
Has a story to tell.

Harbored in there,
Isolated from all,
One tiny drop,
Knew how to evolve.

Oust the trash,
Clean the slate,
Stir yourself,
A new dawn breaks!

  10. This is one hell of a poem. Remarkably deep and elegantly evocative, it portrays life at its eloquent best. It stirred so many thoughts in my mind.

    “In this very scum,
    You may find a shell,
    The pearl inside,
    Has a story to tell.”

    This one has much depth and meaning in it. Exceptionally written!

  20. Important learnings in life come in the guise of difficulties,storms and upheavals. It is our sacred duty towards life to gather ourselves up and cherish the 'pearl' the storm offered. Beautiful verses, Indu!
