This poem/post is written by my kid sister Dr. Nitya Balagopalan who is a medical intern. When she is not saving the world and helping patients, she puts pen to paper and brings out such beautiful thoughts. Read on..
I sit alone with eye open wide
Staring at the dark, black sky
With prodigious dreams
I think of a life beyond these tangled seams.
I may not talk, I may not speak,
It’s only ’cause my thoughts are big.
Think of a life beyond these tangled seams,
Shout out loud and spread those wings
Into the liberated world of your dreams.
You may struggle and may fall
But stay put and stand tall.
Life is too short and frail
Dream on and set the sail
Just like the vast ocean that always
quietens the storm
Even the seemingly verdict less life
has an outcome.
