The Sprouting LIFE.

It rained last night.
Inundating my soul.

Somehow it managed to penetrate so deep.

To wash 'it' all...


And sprouts this morning in me,

This life.

Innocent, tender and green.

And I am changed.

I had never in my life felt this before.

This 'tender life' in me, I had never realised or seen...


This tender 'life'.
Is not for prudence to smother.

Is not for any past or 'those people' to bother..

This life.

Is to grow...

To breathe, to bloom, to survive.

This 'life' is to set me free.
It is to tell me that I AM ALIVE...

  1. Hey Gazal! This is a truly wonderful piece of poetry... The message is great! The rain really inundates the soul sometimes esp when we enjoy it alone...it is the best time to introspect.
    i liked these lines very much:
    'This life.
    Is to grow...
    To breathe, to bloom, to survive.
    This 'life' is to set me free.
    It is to tell me that I AM ALIVE...'

  6. Let every moment tell you that you are alive. Let the rain drizzle on you so that you can feel your heart. May this becomes the most beautiful life for you.
