Sun has risen from the west

Sun for a change,
Rising from the west,
I think I am mad,
I wanna test,

I jumped up from bed,
Looked into the west,
I left for the shore,
Through my inner door,

I am seeing from far,
Guided by the evening star,
Makes me even more mad,
I am getting eager more,

I realized,
It is the sunset,
Immortal dreams,
It is still a change,

My life has changed,
All the problems glore,
As the sun sets,

And the twinkling stars,
Call me close,
To sit up above the world,
And watch stars on earth,

For I have risen,
The Real Sun…

Inspired by the night life and those who work in shifts.. And it includes me 😛

I feel this the best poem I have ever written about my own self. From being a laughing stock, an easy prey and an idiot to what I am today, I have come a long way and I still have a very long way to go. This poem depicts the change in me that has happened in the last 8 years. For all those who have been part of my journey, I wanna thank you all for making this happen.
