The sparkling eyes full of innocence,
the face that has so much to tell.
The dried up laughter, the living tears-
all those thoughts that had meant well…
She never knew, life is so unfair;
the struggle, the rough pathways.
The never-ending storms that destroyed all;
filled with grief, were those endless days.
And sometimes, an occasional sunshine;
the good, the better and the best.
Little joys and mirth around-
Happiness that matters more than the rest.
Now, she has realized everything;
Life’s like sugar and spice.
The uncertain mixed feelings;
Life with its virtue and vice.
For she is the “Destiny’s child”
For her life is a contradiction.
A fair bit of hope and a tryst with fate;
A truth that is stranger than fiction!!!
(Destiny’s child is a special poem for me in many ways. The words are simple enough and it may seem ordinary but if you read it peacefully, you would see that it conveys a deep meaning. A meaning that goes well beyond words. A sorrow that is so obvious yet a determination so profound that it just breaks the heart…)
