A miracle that never happened!

Somewhere in the silent recesses of my mind

A forgotten memory is re-born

Memory of a miracle that never happened

On that gloomy day, darkness hunted our light of hope

And we groaned in an abyss of defeated bliss

Our joy grew wings and flew away into skies of oblivion

Though, the heavens roared aloud

It poured no showers from its high towers

Not even a drop to revive the dying leaf

From the agonizing grip of death!

Grandpa would have called such fate.

And in my head, paint the picture of a three-headed monster

Who shakes the very foundation of all mortal’s faith

O Fate! You villain that carts away grand treasures

The old witch that spares none, even a day old!

You ended a life before it could begin

Fate, death, destiny or whatever you bear

Wherever you are, lend me your ears

Stand not so tall, this is no feat

In no time, your maestro shall fall

With a golden pen, the one who resides above

Shall re-write this haunting memory, pleasingly in my heart

He shall take off the STILLness in this BIRTH

And yet again, a ‘miracle’ shall visit mother earth

 

Dedicated To Kikelomo Mercy!

I know it sounds weird…. but of a truth, a week before this happened to her, i had a urge to write about stillbirth. Alas! it happened to her. She is strong now and am sure Jehovah will shower his rain of mercy upon her. Another ‘miracle will vist her!

  1. My heart goes out to your friend. Still birth has to be one of the greatest fears of a pregnant woman. Well written piece here if a bit too simple.

      1. you mean its too simple?

        1. Yes, this is just a personal opinion. I felt the voice of words too simple. They sometimes missed the mark in conveying the gravity of the topic.

  2. Simple isnt bad. But perhaps it should have carried more weight considering its subject. I didn’t feel sad until I read the dedication.

    1. ee yah sowi, would do beta on other poems, but it won’t be on such topic, coz i dont pray for a recurrence.

  3. the last ten lines were my best.

    Grandpa would have called such fate.

    And in my head, paint the picture of a three-headed monster…was it ur grandpa that would paint d pic in ur head?
    didnt get that…

    nice piece and i dont find it simplistic at all.

    1. Yeah, Grandpa tot me alot about life
      Man’s predestination
      i grew up to learn that whatever happens to man is as written down by fate
      Though now i have an eclectic view of such matters.

  4. Yes, this is just a personal opinion. I felt the choice of words too simple. They sometimes missed the mark in conveying the gravity of the topic.
