I didnít know that life
Would take such a twist,
A twist, that never twists.
I didnít know my mother
Would be so harsh to me,
That she in no way ever calls me a son.
I didnít know, that doorWould get so jammed,
That it wouldnít openEven after many decades.
I didnít know that fate
Would at all times be at that devilís side.
And always strives to push me aside.
I didnít know that a truthful struggle
Keeps on struggling
Until there is a struggle in itself.
But at last I found
The tinge of life
Even at the cavern
There is a ray of light
And that is with what
You and I stay alive.

|So very true, Bhatka. Life is more of a struggle than I had ever imagined it would be but I have found my strength from those struggles and I have found my joy in the growth that they caused. We do need to focus upon the light because it is from that place that we can overcome all adversity. Excellent poem.
