Eternal: NaPoWriMo Day 16

Other than being a NaPoWriMo poem, this post is also for this week’s DP Challenge.

———-

You may pull out my seeds of integrity,
Buried inside my each and every piece,
You may throw them away out of your cruelty,
You may if you please.

You may blemish them with mud and dirt,
And even torture them with callous sun-rays,
If not satisfied, you may even make me hurt,
Kill me and throw me there, where you threw my integrity away.

But bear it in your heart like an imprint as I say,
That so easily integrity does not die,
I may be dead in my human form but one day,
As a plant I will rise.

———-

If you wish, you may take me and my will,
And then, turn it into dust with heartless pity,
You may throw away on barren lands across the hill,
So, I do not rise like my integrity

You may even freeze the mighty sun,
And let the winds rule the land,
You may even throw away all the water on Earth,
And bind the planet with a poisonous band.

But, bear it in your heart as an imprint as I say,
That my will is made of rock, does not rust,
I may be dead in my human form, but one day,
I will fly as the dust.

———-

Now, you may burn my beliefs and my very existence,
Your minions may bury my ashes through the abyss,
Into the core of the Earth on your insistence,
And out of your cruel habits.

You may destroy the very face of Earth,
Destructing every piece of water, dust and seed,
You may kill every creature, every plant that took birth,
Even seize the winds, the air that we breathe.

But, bear it in your heart as an imprint as I say,
That beliefs do not die, no matter if hurt,
I may be dead in my human form, but one day,
As a volcano, I will burst.

Mostly this poem is misinterpreted. The poem is not a mere emphasis on hope and optimism but also tends to underline the presence of a reason behind everything. The poems shows how the very things that crush you may be later become the reason for your success. For instance, if you look at the first stanza again you will notice how all those things that blemished integrity ( water, sun, mud etc) were in face the very things needed to turn it into a plant and grow.
