How will I survive…without another word!?

How will I survive...without another word!? long poem

Very often we seek love, warmth, caress, inspiration and motivation to move on.
Very often we ask for guidance if not from God then from men to confirm our decisions.
Very often we struggle to live through heartaches of solace and negligence in our own misery.
Very often, every day, we search, and keep on searching for a word of sunshine to survive….
My question is…..
What if the sunshine never comes?
What if the sun wakes up dry?
What if we never get enough sunshine?
What if Eclipse comes forever?

When I think about the hopes that keep us living day in, day out
When I think of the woman and mother carrying a child in her belly
When I think of the son camouflaged in the battlefield to fight for his motherland
When I think of the father in the fields,
Never stretching his spine, afraid to lose a minute for his family might starve.

When I think of all this…..
I am reminded that even if the sunshine never comes
Even if the sun wakes up dry
Even if I never get enough sunshine
And Eclipse takes over the days of my living
That is when I begin to reflect the sunshine I absorbed
While the sun shone deliberately and prosperously upon my being…
And live the life for others, as if I were the Sun!
