A Date with Life

I embrace you in open arms

in pain and in laughter

in joys and sorrows,

as I falter mapping the paths

broad and narrow.

With heavy feet, I tread

teary eyes, I dream,

with blank verse and onomatopoeia,

I take count of my memorabilia.

Happy days spent with happy people

happy faces turning sour

and I witnessed them all.

Innocence trampled in unjust lanes

played and rattled with

I allowed it to fall

and then allowed it to heal.

A fool was I

took time to learn the ways of life,

never knew even love has its price

I thought it to be all bright.

Writing forayed into my soul

uncalled and unthought of,

while I was knocking on the closed door,

You paved a whole new road.
