When things go wrong

a poem by Jayaram Chetty D G

Sometimes in life when things go wrong
   As usually they do
When loved ones too don’t hold your hand
   And friends don’t stand by you.

When threatening clouds engulf the sky
   In dark and sombre hues
You want to cry your dear heart out
   In lonely solitude.

These are the times when we must seek
   The strength to bear our pain
From deep within our forlorn souls
   And come out whole again.

For life is but a mixture of
   Some bitter, some sweet days
We’ve got to learn to take them both
   Each in its special way
