A Ray Of Hope

Another amateur attempt at poetry. Looking forward for your feedback so that I can improve upon it. 











Flipping off the murky shades,
Lambent in a glorious might,
I see light at the farther east.

Life so obscure all this while,
I kept dodging, blind as bat,
Craving for the light to shine.

With no strength left to try,
And it failed to come to end,
It was faith that I would lose.

Now that things are easing off,
Facing light at the father east,
I thank thee with all my life.

  4. True, we all want to hang on to our rays of hope. One suggestion to make your blog look neater, put the Followers and tweets in the sidebar and let the title and header be clutter free.
