Weird Whispers.

Alone in my darkened room
Along with the blessed solitude
I lay straight and stare the wall
Figuring out my life's rises and falls
Thinking that I may belong to somewhere else
Knowing it made a little sense
Comprehending the purpose of my existence
Was I being created for practicing persistence
Thinking what forced me for doing wrongs
Why was I destined to hear the melancholic songs?
And when I ended up questioning myself
I saw a ray of light entering the room
I woke up and took a great deep sigh
A sigh of relief, that's what I believe
As Lord has shown me the way to fly
A reason to live; a purpose to die

I am not writer because after reading this poem i dont have words to express my feelings .......But

Your poem give the courage, hope to person who lost everything in life or unsuccesful person my believe that after reading this anyone can get courage and fight with the hard time of life....

Selection of words has depth like oceans and also pain in it......

It's a master piece, Keep it up
Wish you Best of Luck

I find myself too weak when it comes to commenting on prose, and even weaker when it comes to poetry.
Sarah! I can just leave these lines 4 you.
Ist March 3:30 AM, while I was busy April-fooling my friends, your words reminded of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel 'One Hundred Years Of Solitude'.

Sarah, you have a lot of potential as a poet. I would suggest that you review the phrasing in this piece to enhance some of the cliches or overused phrases you've used, such as "darkened room" and "ray of light". These are opportunities to really be interesting!

btw- you might really like gotpoetry.com, where you can get fabulous critique and suggestions from extremely talented writers.

You've got talent. It's rare that such expression issues forth like a spring of cool fresh water from the bowels of the fiery earth.

My only concern is your melancholy shouldn't consume you.

The pain of the past was perhaps meant to tap such talent. If so, it has achieved its purpose. Now, go inspire the world. Leave the pain behind. It had to be.
