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 ~

  6. You pick the BEST pictures!!!

    What your poem says to me is that it would be great to come back with a different brain/mindset, which I completely agree with.

  8. Gayle Walters Rose says:

    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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Gayle,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  9. Beautifully expressed. I would opt for variety myself, though (despite my response to the prompt) in human form.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Rosemary,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 😀
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 🙂

  10. 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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Georgina,

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 😀
      Highly appreciated, lots of love 🙂
      xoxo

  11. I do not believe that I will come back but if I were, I’d have to say I want to be me again. Your poem flows so nicely.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Carol,

  13. 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.

  17. i interpret this rebirth as a moving forward moving on because i believe that has been is part of what will be and that is ‘destiny’.
