'Bloom' away the 'Gloom'



I stood by the window

With good reasons to curse

For life was turning from bad to worse
I wondered how could anyone preserve his morality
When all around is disloyalty.


When people around you are all so corrupt
How could your principle and values not disrupt
I looked outside keeping aside my plight
When suddenly i saw a wonderful sight.

Far away on a small flower bed
Grew a little rose,so bright and red

The rose with thorns was completely surrounded

Yet in pleasant fragrance it fully abounded.


Beside there was a pond with weeds of every kind
In grew a lotus of color rare to find
Surroundings too filthy,smell really awful
Yet the lotus bloomed,radiant and beautiful.

In an atmosphere conducive and fine
everything would glitter and shine
But living in hell and doom
Its really credible to bloom.

Look at lotus,look at rose
Its always the beauty,wherever it grows
So than I held my nerves and decided to be bold
Than every stone could be turned in to a gold !!!!!!!!
