Running away…

Saurabh Chawla |
running away-poem by saurabh chawla

Running away…
From darkness
Like a pendulum I sway
Tired of the painful sharpness

Tried to stay calm
Maintained the inner peace
Causing much more harm
But now I resist to cease

Running away…
From the small
To make a way
Tired of the inner brawl

Sometimes I feel apologetic
For this severe condition
It may seem to you poetic
But it is not a rendition

Running away…
From all the bad
To face the good
Saying goodbye to being sad

Enough of the sarcasm
It’s too hard to handle
Falling into a deep chasm
Extinguished once, now I am the burning candle!
