Poem - The Fight's on

The Fight's on - Anup R

In a crowd and yet all alone
He stands still
He's got nowhere to go
He often wishes he had a heart of stone
Coz' he'd not have all these feelings
that lay hidden .... that he dare not show

He's spent the night wide awake
Thinking about everything that's at stake
And though life seems to be one big mistake
He still goes around carrying a smile that's fake

Yes he breathes.... but he's not alive
Yes he hurts.... but he doesn't cry
Yes he bleeds.... but he refuses to die
His wings are clipped.... but his spirit still flies high

So he gathers all of his might
He puts on his armor and rushes back into the fight
From dawn to dusk and all through the night
He strives for what be believes is right

He's still praying....
for the revealing....
of the one for whom he's been waiting
for a lifetime of belonging

This poem may not make sense to most. But, it does to me.... :)

Basically, the guy feels lonely and is searching/praying for his soulmate... the one who'll complete him... who'll complement him...who'll love him for who he is... with the same intensity with which he loves her... (the rest will be covered in an upcoming article on marriages that I promised a few buddies.... I'm still working on it... I'm still gathering my thoughts on it... and hopefully you should see it some time the coming week....)

Very well written Anup!

**Yes he breathes.... but he's not alive
Yes he hurts.... but he doesn't cry
Yes he bleeds.... but he refuses to die
His wings are clipped.... but his spirit still flies high

I loved that bit.

However if u r relating this bit to a guy who hasnt found his soul mate, it cant be that bad mate :) c'mon most guys who find their soul mates would say this bit after the wedding lol!

Thanks for your comment and prayers you said on my blog:) Great poem, and I get it, and here's a {{{{{{{{HUGE HUG}}}}}}}}} from me. Guys you all make it so hard to be human, at least women show our emotions, but then we go too far, and never stop! I guess that's why we need both men and women here on earth. You have a great day! Take care, Elisa:)

Found an article that dealt with loneliness and aloneness recently ....
we all need a support system to live in a city away from home or our friends ....

true very very true ....

Thanks 4 ur encouragement... I need all that I can get :)

Absolutely... I agree with u totally... as for the support system... I guess we bloggers are one such support system ... we open up our lives to each other... and as all are in the same boat... we naturally empathise with each other....
