I am The Victor, I am the Light.

by Tanuja Chatterjee
(Kolkata, India)

Crucial is my firm determination
For resounding victories;
I won't retreat, I won't give up
With a firm resolve I seek,
My new found challenges
Of this new day
I brim with joy fulfilling.
I rise again to these
With regained self-confidence
So compelling.

The sky is clear and blue
So am I
Strong, unclouded, still pure and true.
The little mission of this day,
Rejuvinates my soul through and through.

My daily life
And my work
Form the ground for me to stand
From here I give out my battle cry
Come problems,challenge me
Before you, here I stand!

They come at a galloping speed
Raising heads to pounce and attack
But find themselves confined and bound
In the chains of iron will I cast.
My firm determination defeats them
Even before they arise
I steer clear my ship from rough weather
Into the deep and calm ocean wide.

Unremitting struggles though
Is life is all about
Fear not; oh my little heart!
Your joys won't be slight.
This ship of life can sail through
From misey to delight
For I'm it's captain,
I'm that victor
In the darkness
I am the light.

Poignant, melancholic and terse
by: Sneha

Beautiful verse...just like a ray of light like from far across the tunnel. You should write more often, Tanuja.
