a short rendition about the time when one feels one has finally found his/her true calling.

I was standing at the precipice,

watching the storm unfold;

Drenched in the fear of unknown,

I had stepped forward once more.

I had drifted for too long,

in the ocean of vagueness;

I had got it all wrong,

in the face of madness.

But now the clouds have parted;

the Dawn I finally see,

asking me to break my shackles,

and finally be free!

Life will always keep coming,

like a waterflow in the spring;

And dreams will always crouch behind these eyes,

even after a million goodbyes.

Standing on the shore and wondering wont help;

I'll get up,

spread my wings,

and learn to FLY!

The Forgiven

Hey, beautifully done...this one too. Learnt new things.
However the rhyme scheme, I felt was a little broken.
The best part of a poem is definitely the imagination and the message...and I have already in love with your imagination.

yeah...i agree about the rhyme...i was a bit confused. Was actually in a dilemma whether to finish the poem or just leave it as it. But thanks for going through it and for your comment :)
