Clouds of fear, sun of success

on Wednesday, January 21, 2009


I stand on the podium,
Getting accolades
And applauds echoing in my ear
I remember those days, spent in fear.
The fear of failure,
The fear to lose,
A feeling I hated,
More than a booze.
It felt gloomy,
It felt dark
I used to wonder
Why I can't be a gay lark.
With the taxing times
Coming ahead
I could not find
Myself at rest.
Then came an angel,
Into my life
And helped me know,
Happiness does not come
Where anxieties rife.
I saw my angel,
I saw God
I looked back,
And I knew, fallacious is, what he was not.
He wiped the darkness
And helped me conquer the fear
He had this belief in me,
And was there for me to cheer.
He instilled in me
This very thought
Failure is not end, but a bend
And I consented with a nod.
I walked on the road to success,
I found the path
This journey from dusk to dawn,
Taught me I could have never seen the sun
With clouds of apprehension on my lawn.
