Grow in Silence

Photo by Binyamin Mellish on

Buried deep under the soil,

Away from light and audience

In the darkness, it slowly grows

Peeping deep into its inner self

Introspecting its strength

Analyzing its weakness

seed that encompasses

The possibility of life within

Silently blossoms and raises itself

from the deep slumber into the world

Of unknown with all the vigor

Unbiased and undaunted

Without any fear of failure

Let us pledge also to draw inspiration

To look deep within ourselves

Till we grow into our best selves

Away from noise of comparisons

To constantly strive to shine on life’s horizon!

NB: The poem is inspired by nature & is written for the Pratilipi poetry marathon
