When thus reborn

Spread the love

This comes to pass when one’s forlorn;
When merit is placed in eyes of scorn.
Some days revered – some days damned
I bade my heart please understand.
That men are masters of their fate;
Whether joy or woe their steps await.
It’s better to jump than hesitate.
No reason’s huge enough to mourn;
In ways like these be thus reborn.

Oh heavens sweet create the same;
This life, this hope with all its aim.
Often I breathe this earnest prayer;
To give me strength enough to bear.
So years from now on glorious morn;
In ways like these be thus reborn.

    I specially love this part Sanaa :

    To give me strength enough to bear.
    So years from now on glorious morn;
    In ways like these be thus reborn.

    This time, maybe wiser and stronger, smiles ~

    I most definitely would not like to return to live this life over again. My poem was fanciful in a wish to be more free perhaps than these human forms with all of our progress and intelligence. Lovely poem, Sanaa.

  3. Georgina says:

    This is beautifully written and quite theological in a poetic way as we can only question possibilities and these might not be our beliefs. I think I approached the prompt as fun way to look at the birds who struggle to survive this life.

  4. Myrna says:

    Each morning offers an opportunity for rebirth, for change and sometimes for a remake of things we don’t like. So why not come back as you? You’re the best you’ve got. Enjoyed this poem very much Sanaa.
