Mourn Me Not | Poetry Random Specific Thoughts

The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.”
― Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist

On misty days and grief drenched mornings,
When sight is blurry and life a dark ride,
I see you drunk with perplexion and
Lost in wonderous complexities.
But, mourn me not
For I shall rise soon.

Bloodied paths do you tread,
Remnants of human frailty.
When love is lacking and
Hope blinded by naivete,
Mourn me not
For my return is forthcoming.

Echoing whispers do I hear,
Prayers and curses – of humans young and old.
Faith invested in people and stars,
My rays show me a world
In apprehension of the future,
The present spent in prayers
For a better tomorrow.

Enormous miseries and fantasies
Do my luminosity envelope,
Emitting shards of magical realism –
Your quotidian charm.

As long as tomorrow exists,
Mourn me not.
For I shall rise everyday
And leave novel beginnings in my wake.

“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.”
― Helen Keller

This poem was written from the sun’s perspective since the sun is often used as a metaphor to convey positivity, happy times and such. The world isn’t in the best possible state right now but we’ll hopefully get through this. Hope you had a good read!

Thoughtfully yours,

  10. What a beautifully-worded reminder of positivity and light. No matter what we go through, the sun always rises the next day – bringing with it new opportunities for a better day. The diction in your poetry is incredible and I love your imagery too. The repetition of ‘mourn me not’ at the end of each stanza was powerful, especially when contrasted against the dark imagery used in the beginning of each stanza. Your skill with the pen is beyong impressive!

  12. You portrayed hope dipped with courage. That is really enthralling and powerful. It’s true when peace of the night turns chaotic, the sun calms down and the balance regains itself. Great job!
