A reason to smile

Standard

The playful wind tried
to draw me in,
draw me out
of my sullen whim
I rebeled,
repelled
with all my might,
refused to give in,
give up
without a fight

The sun too gazed,
tried to erase
my darkened mood
with its charming rays
The rays
could not touch me
inject me,
infect me
with life,
the rays
could not affect me

But when
the silver moon beckoned
The temptress,
in her element,
fearless and strong,
giving the blue night
a reason to smile
I knew then,
I too had got mine.
A reason to
live and love and hope,
just be,
and the strength
to cope.
The truth was right there,
underlined
The moon was right..
The choice was mine.

  1. ‘giving the blue night a reason to smile’- like that. and yes, i like the strength in the poem, the attitude that one can make a heaven out of hell and vice versa too 🙂
