WHEN I STUMBLED IN LIFE

Whenever I stumbled in life,

It was only because of absence of light,

And the more I allowed darkness to remain and reign,

Is when my light abstained.

*

 For absence of light is dark,

Bereft of eyes is dark,

Absence of knowledge is dark,

For darkness always resides in a care-of.

*

In the medley of life,

Darkness is death and oxygen is light,

And when the sun-sets, darkness too rests,

But upon sunrise darkness strikes.

*

Darkness laughs at the failures of light,

But light never finds the trace of darkness,

Darkness thinks light is scared,

When, light doesn’t even get a chance to dare.

*

In the hot chase of life,

Chase out darkness and bring in light,

For light is the beacon, but darkness a crime,

And, all in the bickering of time.

*

 And ever in the windmills of life,

If darkness strikes,

Blame only yourself,

For you did not follow the light
