Life


 

 

Struggling to hold on to life

is a sapling, stamped upon

 by life, by neglect,

 by the relentless flow of time

 over its tender green fingers

 it bends over in pain

 it squirms in sheer agony

 pushed and buried under stones

yet at the touch of a gentle drop of rain

 it springs back to life

 forgetting the past

 forgetting the nightmares

 forgetting itself, its fragility

 in the joy of being still alive !
