Amidst the Fall #AtoZChallenge 2017

It’s a silent dark night,
Frosting each and every surface.
Wind blowing like never before,
And the chill in the air numbing me in and out.
This winter has been harsh.
It’s broken each piece of me,
Everything in and out.
My pride, my life, my soul.

Every time I lose a piece of me,
It reminds me how important each piece is.
As I wither off silently,
There is an ocean full of emotions within.

You can break me.
You can make me numb.
Yet I stand there still,
With head held high and straight.

Not ready, to be broken again.
But to face the reality,
I stand still unshaken,
Cause I know it’s just a fall, not the end.

I will wait for the sun.
To spring again,
To bloom again with pride,
And to be in harmony again with my soul.

Amidst this fall,
There is a hope,
I will be back,
To behold my pride and soul

  1. I like it – the 2nd to 5th stanzas sound like a separate poem to the 1st stanza though, maybe they could stand on their own? (And maybe as lyrics! 🙂 )

    I’m taking part in the challenge for the first time this year. 🙂 I’m a writer too, stepping outside my comfort zone and delving into crime writing. My theme is: Secret Diary Of A Serial Killer.

    • Thanks for stopping by Natalie, glad you liked it.This poem is written keeping tree as a person. the harshness, the withering off, the chill are all connected to each other.The idea was, when reader reads it he/she can imagine it to be a story of a person, tree or themselves

  2. That is a beautiful poem, I am taking part in the challenge too, first time and started a bit late, i was unaware of it , have a bit of catching up to do
