Somebody Within Me

Sometimes I feel lonely
isolated and left out
promises unfulfilled
ditched and reproached
blue and cryptic memories abound…

But in a lonely corner within me
there is somebody
with a panglossian view,
raising a voice of revolt
with unflinching hope
and brawny belief…

Let the world say whatever it thinks,
be unbridled in approach,
thoughts and action,
hope dawns bright light
tomorrow gets better than today…

That somebody enters into colloquy
and wins me over…

  1. Dear Kaushal, let me first tell you how stonished I am at your erudition!!!
    Panglossian view? Being super optimistic is what keeps us alive and full of hope for better days.
    My view too.
    Thank you.

    1. बिल्कुल सही लिखा है आपने। हर व्यक्ति के अंतर्मन में कतिपय अवसरों पर कुछ और चलता रहता है, जबकि करता कुछ और है। प्रशंसा और टिप्पणी के लिए आपका आभार 🙏💐🌹
