The Dearth for Strength of Mind



I left my home ,
To work in a far-off land,
I found a deep sense of sorrow,
When I had to leave,
Behind all those who loved,
And cared for me.
Their concern enabled me,
To lead a peaceful and care-free life,
It left me with a feeling,
That I have nothing to feel secure,
A deep sense of sorrow engulfed me,
Life gives you a variety of feelings,
Of joy, numbness and sorrow,
To maintain a strong sense ,
Of balance to retain to retain,
Your strength of mind and valor.
