Sadness - Poem

Vanita is an engineer-researcher-consultant-artist: a gifted singer-poetess; & writes in English-Hindi-Gujarati on her diverse experiences



The Sadness within

Stares –

In silent pining

With tearless eyes

And dry lips

As the clamours of Fears

Ring in its ears –

Unaffected by the noise

And the pains of wounded, bleeding heart ….

Searching, Waiting for the Strength

To raise its hands –

Folded with Devotion

And dissolve its Spirit

Into the eternal calmness of Surrender.
