What is Peace Without You

Calmness seldom exists, chaos abruptly erupts and uproar claims my world when you are around.

And when you are not, there is serenity,  but it is never a bliss

Hope beyond Adversity

Dancing wild in some boisterous thunderstorm,
Disheveled and scattered,
Draped in darkness,
Lost in the canvas of wilderness,
The raindrops fighting hard to sustain the squall.

And when the gale abates,
The fortitude prevails despite broken scape,
Those millions of helpless drops come together to form a gushing stream,
Flowing with vigor,
Defeating the ostensible destruction.

Rising Above All Odds

Battling the darkness,
fighting the malign,
jostling adversity,
dodging cosmic signs.

Like a gladiator’s grit,
the moon repels and morphs.

Every shape being unique,
every shine to behold.

Not very different from you,
for your best comes to display when the stakes are against you.
