O is for ‘On the ropes’

I am on a voyage of a thorny life 
Where depression and melancholy is rife;
And the bleed due to this mental strife 
Beheads my hope with a razor knife

Those distant dreams that I once saw near
Appears afar, which might chew another more year; 
My courage started to cave in, with a swelling fear
Even after working with the right gear  

When the tentacles of feeling irresolute ensnare, visible becomes the invisible    
Those dreams that I once saw grow well
Appears to droop, rather than to swell
My faith started to sink into this deep well
All at once, so now I am crippled to quell

Those dreams that I once saw grow tall
Appears to dissolve, each day turning small
My confidence started to drop, almost closer to null
And now I know, I am going to fall

“Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving” – Albert Einstein


  1. Beautifully composed poem Dumcho Sir. And I am sure that, you aren't going to fall but will rise towards the sky. Best Wishes from me. Hope everything is going well everyday. Take Care. :)

    1. Ugyen, thank you for the wishes. Hope I don't fall and am trying not to. Take care, you too.

  2. I quote you sir "Pangs and pains are part and parcel of life. Take it easy. Life is in fact not bed of roses. Hope the things will turn right soon." when ray of hope slowly faded, I searched and cling on word 'soon' was little late but it definitely came. Cheers sir. Hope 'soon' will come soon for you.

    1. Thank you Tshering. I need that "soon" very soon at this time. Hope you are doing great.

  3. I am really touched by this poem - rich with emotions. I just got why such emotional poem comes out of you. My prayers will for you. Hope you'll soon be removed from the boggy vagaries of those depression and separation. Takecare sir. God bless you!

  4. Dumcho sir, beautifully composed. I could read pangs of emotional pain you're through. My good wishes and prayers for your swift revert to normalcy. Thanks.
