A new beginning

Posted on: October 22, 2010

We were waiting for the sun to rise
A ray of hope, waiting for the hopelessness to demise
A draft of wind to blow away the darkness within
Or just a piece of paper thin

It had been a wait so long, so forlorn
Time stood still while we hobbled on
Want had turned into a gruesome need
As is our wont, inaction gave way to deed

Every act burdensome
Every body lonesome
Every move instilled dread
Every word inspired hatred

It started slowly, a buzz all around
First one knew, soon it was abound
The light that shone in the distance
Radiant, shorn of all askance

It engulfed us one at a time
Freeing us of the shame, freeing us from the crime
And while we now wait for the drops of dew
Hail to thee, it’s a beginning new

…… WOW… Hail to thee !!!

Nice composition. But what is the context? Just a sudden spark of creativity? Or the manifestation of a prolonged experience ?
