Poetry: Celebration of Life (Nivedita Roy)

Nivedita Roy
My gaiety, my joy 
Interspersed with some soliloquies 
On a path to find myself, 
I find solace in my scribbles 

Agonies or ecstasies 
Are borne with elan
Painful sagas etched  
Blissful memories are inked 
They are tucked away 
Warmly in my journal

I wish to blossom as the spring  
My writing gives me a swing 
Each step is a lesson 
I am the Cinderella of this season! 

I laugh, I cry
I love, I loathe 
I share, I hide 
I smile, I brood 
I pour out all on a piece of paper

With all its ups and downs 
Life is a celebration 
Poetry is the soirée I attend 

Stricken hearts need a balm 
Stress borne humans need to be calm
The bards alight with a peace branch 
An apparition in white on the ranch
The vast ground for unbridled thoughts 
What can be and what is nought
Poetry is panacea for all that’s lost
