To Quill the Mocking World

Reborn


By Nikhil Menon

(3 min read)

As I stared into the cold abyss

Where the sun was far amiss

I longed for a comforting hand

But all I kept was searching in the dark

 

Lonely I felt, and deeply I wept,

Why? But Why?

Was the only question I asked

 

I then heard a chuckle,

Which I suppose was my own,

And then I realised,

I was reborn on my own

 

The mist parted,

And I saw myself,

Smiling as ever, playful as ever,

Back to the Golden days,

Is how I felt

 

Then the darkness came crashing down,

And as the sun broke its first light,

All I could do was keep a smile,

Because my home was just within a mile.
