The Blind [Poem]

My self written poem. I had written this poem quiet time back.
I was 16 yrs old when i wrote this poem.
Also published here-

i was walking alone with no one beside,
God knows how it feel with no one in sight.
somehow i felt the darkness of the night,
and i only longed to have some light.

but i knew whether it is day or night,
i wudn't be able to see the light.
my eyes that i possessed were long lost,
to have a new one i had to pay a big cost.

i knew i cudn't afford an operation,
this is my life's new situation.
where all my loved ones left me behind,
and moved on in their life coz i was blind.

i know that life never ends here,
maybe it started here, but it wud end there.
i know that life sometimes gives pain,
but somehow oneday u wud gain.

though i am blind, i can see this world,
and smile silently when the winds blow my curls,
i can, though not, see it with my eyes,
but i have something more worthwhile.

i can see the world by my heart,
carrying me in a cart,
i can imagine all the things around,
i can feel them taking rounds.

if God takes away something from u,
he makes sure that he gives something special to u.
Never get depressed or low,
but before God just bow.

i am blind and thus i can't watch,
but people with the eyes too can't catch.
the real intentions of people around,
which makes me feel somewhat proud.

i see through my heart, what they actually say,
is their greed by some other way.
i know that i can never see the things in the way they are,
but i still can imagine them to my heart.

life always isn't happy or gay,
but there is some or the other way.
even if i am alone, i am with someone beside,
it is God who is with me inside.

so what if i am blind,
does it mean that people can't be kind.
i love the way i am, even if i am blind,
just i urge for the sunshine in my life.
