Conflict

"Am I happy?" I question with hope,
The reply comes quick "Nope".
It was tough for me to cope;
I looked around for a rope.


Life seemed to be mere;
But at the pinnacle, it was so dear.
Later, I changed gear;
Which took me into the rear.


I had a whirlpool in my mind,
Which helped me to find.
That life was so kind,
And I completely blind.

  1. I am a fauji and all words in this post have been part of my daily life - conflict, hope, nope, cope, rope, pinnacle, gear, rear; whirlpool of mind, find, kind, blind and finally "Am I happy"??? In my case I have found the mantra of my happiness - my wife and kids have to be happy for me to be happy. Nice read but I think 12 lines are too short, suggest add minimum 8 more lines.

  7. A question of ages: Do people who were born blind, see dreams ?
    I mean, people who were born blind never saw anything, so how can they dream ? They don't differ colors or anything. Do you think they dream at night ?
