Yearning For Life

Posted: December 22, 2018

A poem which says that though life is not a bed of roses, but still the zeal to live life triumphs.

It’s not easy to let go;
To not feel the pain in your soul.
It’s not easy to pick yourself up;
To dust off, to take another step.

It’s not easy to smile in pain;
To not feel alone, not feel strain.
It’s not easy to open your heart;
To make again that first start.

It’s not easy to see things anew;
To not feel blinded by few.
It’s not easy to again nurture hope;
To hold once again the end of the rope.

Life makes it difficult sometimes to go on
and yet the yearning for it never stops.
