Left behind.

Left behind.

A Poem by Anjali

I left so much behind,
And I collected a lot much in the meantime,
Whatever I had lost behind.

I tried to run ahead,
But the rocks holding me, were behind and not ahead.
So, I looked behind and never ahead.

I thought, I was drowning.
But, there wasn't any water, surrounding.
So, I just went with the flow and kept on drowning.

The sky was a million light years away,
But, I was also away from the ground, far far away.
The sky was inches apart,
But, I let go and flew away.

The Hope was there, all the time.
But, I thought it was a lock,
And the key wasn't there, at any time.
But the lock was already open, Everytime,
And, never saw it, wasting away all my dimes.

I left so much behind,
And I collected a lot which wasn't mine.
Never noticed that I hadn't lost anything behind......

Hey,

Thank you for entering your poem.

The fact that the stanzas were short allowed for fluidity and the story to develop. I enjoyed the presence of hope in your piece and for somebody so young I feel that it is important to never lose sight of hope as it allows you to carry on in times of struggle.

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for reading and for the sweet words!
I love how it aches me just a lit bit inside because it reminds me of being stuck in a place where I felt like I was being held down. But the only to be free was right in front of me and I just needed to let go. I love reading things I relate to and I think that's what readers like the most. I've read a couple more of you're writings and I've not disliked any so far so keep doing what you're doing.

Thank you so much for your sweet words...it really means a lot!
Very well written . . . every line filled with emotions.. "I left so much behind,
And I collected a lot which wasn't mine."
This was the best line and its very true . . . people never value what they have. . . keep sharing
