Lost and WON

02 Nov

Adored a girl from the beginning of May,

mind engulfed in her thoughts almost everyday.

Her blue eyes giving a stare,

was overwhelmed to see it was rare.

The smile on her face,

motivated me to fight another race.

Her long hair darker than darkest night,

all set to show its glistening might.

Her innocence like a child,

her touch so soothing and mild.

The panache in her walk,

made the world turn and talk.

I admired somebody,

a day made me realized I was nobody.

The time of dismay came,

was I a victim of blame game?

She said it was a fault in me,

but I could hardly see.

She turned again and again,

Alas! to witness my pain.

Forgotten for a while,

unable to crawl even a mile.

A cherub whispered in my ear,

loads left to be conquered my dear!

The string of lost hopes,

aided as mighty ropes.

Arose yet again to the morning glory,

with a fresh start to my ended story.

Lessons conned from my past,

propelled me to move lil more fast.

Future seemed to be full of accolades,

sentiments of past haunted as sharp blades.

Left no time for thoughts of gloom,

as I was busy weaving a fresh handloom.

Path to success was embellished with precious stones,

every turn astonished me with new thrones.

Success always invited me,

failures never threatened me.

Discovering from the past,

recovering faster and fast,

I left everyone aghast.

There came another May,

the world had lots to say.

A Joker of misfortunes,

was now a King of splendid Fortunes.

    things do change from time to time,
    lose may turn into a win in a different circumstance.
    love your thinking skills.

      Thank you again. I was exactly thinking of a character who lost hope but finally manages to end on a high note.

        Sometimes that is one line which motivates me to be somebody. And I do different things or things differently.. and bring about a mood change. I think it is good. 🙂

  9. The Reason You Come

    It’s good to know that after being a nobody, he now is somebody; from being “a Joker of misfortunes, was now a King of splendid Fortunes.” I’d love to show this to a dear friend who feels depressed now because he thinks he has lost everything. It’s not just wishful thinking to think that one can rise above adversity and heartache; every person who falls can and will stand again as long as he doesn’t give up. Thank you for the inspiration! 🙂

      Thank you “THE REASON YOU CAME”… I do not know your real name so addressing with the pen name… Infact, I never knew that my poems had a sense of inspiration. All I did was converted my thoughts into words. I am glad that you analysed it to the crux. There are few more poems which you may wanna have a look at and they end on an inspiring note. Thanks once again.
