Poem - I choose Life

I Choose Life - AnupR

At the crossroads she stands
She beckons
She even calls out my name
She then stretches out her hands
Offering refuge from the doubts and questions
... that plague young minds

And then she says,
"Pain is all that's left
Rejection is all you're ever gonna get
and you may try but you'll never forget
the way she left you bereft

I'm the cure to your misery
I'm the one who can set you free
Just entrust yourself to me
Just spend the night with me"

But I am just down ... not out
and I know what she's talking about
So I hurry right by where she's standing
I don't stop ... not even glancing
And as I pass she hears me saying

"The pain and the worry
Is just temporary
The future's uncertain
... sometimes it does frighten me
But, in your arms if I spend the night
I'd sleep forever
And that just wouldn't be right

Why do you forget
that I'm not only a heartbroken lover
I'm also a son, a friend, a brother
and I'm certainly not in any hurry
... to stand before the Creator

So, hear this, beautiful Ma'm
Listen to me ... and forget not this day
I see right thru your pretty sham
and I don't give a damn
... for what you have to say

I choose life!"

Yes, yes, I know ... I should be studying ... not blogging ... but, all the studying seems to be getting my creative juices flowing too! ... I got this one last night as I lay down to sleep ... and I couldn't help but jot it down ... and what I jotted ... I shared .... :)

Thanks a lot for all your best wishes, dear buddies ... :)
I'm studing hard!

thanks a lot buddy ... and of course I don't mind ... :)

Thanks so much buddy ... u understand whats on my mind ... yes, I can't give up on life just coz' of one person, now can I? ... it would be unfair to so many who care for me ...
Thanks for all ur wishes! :)

"it's just means you're really inspired by someone naa hehe"
yup ... u r absolutely right, buddy! :)
the past still inspires me ... and I'm actually bugged by it!

I just wanna be normal yaar ... I think I'm just too damn senti for this world ... gotta change ...

"but am wearing the mask of having fun filled life"
we aren't so different, buddy ... Only bloggers and a few close friends actually know of the heartbreak behind the smile that's plastered on my face ...
Hang in there buddy ... Choose Life ... and it will come together for you ... I know it will ...

thanks a lot, buddy. I'm glad u liked it ... :)

'Choose life' is apt for this one.

the pain and the worry will go away but memories remain for a long time to haunt you...

Blogger anup.777 said...

.. thanx buddy ... and since I can see that u r curious ... I'll explain ... that woman is death ... she invites the poet to commit suicide ... sleep forever in her arms ... she tries to take advantage of his heartbreak and seeks to discourage him further ... but he doesn't fall for her trap ... and chooses life instead ...
The reason I wrote this one is coz' suicides have become an easy way out for many in the stressfilled times we live in ... but, it's not right ... coz' there are many who love you ... more importantly, God loves you ... your life has a purpose ... hang in there ... and fulfill your destiny!

I stand by what I said, buddy ... even if its dangerous ... :)

... hmmm ... this I gotta see ... :)

Hey....Smart poem...Yes, sometimes we just need to remembe that wr are not in this earth with only one role but we mean so much to so many people and no matter how hard it is and how much we are hurting because of one person, we got to carry the gunny bag and light the others who love us and whom we love......:) Nice poem Anup
