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.

    Really the best one, something similar to my strange perception towards life, like get depressed and find hope again.

    Again and again…………..really loved it. and I can feel every word of it…..too.

      To write something that touches is an achievement and I am glad to hear that it did. Thank you many more 🙂

      About being softer (“komal”) 😉 i dont know but I think am more harsher than I was before.
