For One Good Reason<

For one good reason, I turned around, 
The threat gripped my heart as it sound,
The fear that I’d fell off on the ground, 
The answers to my reality which were never found. 

I embraced my life the way it was, 
For one good reason, I wanted to break the laws, 
I kept breathing until a silent pause, 
Misery swept away and so did my clause. 

For one good reason, I never looked away, 
The threat that night would darken my life stayed, 
The fear trembled me that I’d never see sun the next day, 
The key to misery clutched the period of my decay. 

I lifted myself for one last time, 
I risked my life ahead of crime, 
While preparing for that one last climb, 
I realized my heart chimed. 

For one good reason, I lived my life, 
I laughed, chuckled and genuinely smiled, 
I slashed my wrist to let the dead blood cells ooze the agony, 
The fears and threats were driven away by my mind’s symphony. 

Since that day, I lived my life to the extreme,
Personified my choices to challenge my self esteem,
I joined every single dot to dream my life’s theme,
Cause’ for one more time, my soul beamed.

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima

  1. I can identify with all of this and can feel the pangs of discontent I see here as well I feel it in my life. your piece certainly ends on an upbeat swing. nicely done !!

    • Yeah, I think we all went through the ups and downs and we’d categorize them in our very own way – some would write up a poetry while others would just bury their realities deep down in their chest 🙂
      Thank you for dropping by Don, hope everything is good with you and your life 🙂

    For one good reason you wrote this.
    You hung your head due to the dark
    Then when you lifted it up
    You realised there was a joyous spark

  3. Nice to see you back. A dark poem but I hear the hope at the end. Nice job. 🙂

    Good to hear from you Naima. Hope you are now settled in with your studies at your UK university.

    • Heya Alex,
      England is treating me good – studies aren’t really a problem cause I know the definition of hard-work. England never fails to surprise me and that’s the beauty of it all 🙂
      The sun shines right on your head when ya least expect it and it begins to pour when ya are walking back home – life seems less miserable and ya ought to learn “Cherish every moment” and that’s what I am doing for now 🙂
      Thank you for asking 🙂

  7. It is so very wonderful Naima, to see you sharing again my sister! I have missed the radiant light of your words. Your spirit and heart have filled my heart with joy this morning! God bless!
