After all…

Tomorrow is another day
All worries let us now forget
Once on today the sun has set
For a clear direction let’s pray
With obstacles out of our way

Let us toast tonight, glass of wine
Be merry, till midnight lets dine
As sun light falls on morning dew
Let watery stars inspire you
Believe today, all will be fine


Author’s Note: Sometimes, one emotion leads to the other. Today wasn’t a good day. I woke up late, nearly missed the office bus, found that sometimes, some people need extreme spoon-feeding at office, someone messed with my work, and my work doubled; in midst of that double work, someone blundered elsewhere, and the whole process had to be restarted. I went to my senior, and poured my grief to him. He’s a good man, he heard me out, and then said to me, “It wasn’t your fault. Some people can’t understand. You don’t worry. Worrying will not solve anything. You do what you have to do to fix it. If anyone points a finger at you, I’ll take care of it.”
 
I thought of it, and I knew he was right. I let it mull for awhile, and then continued my work. It’s still pending, but I’ll be able to get it done sooner I think.


The poetic form involved here is a Décima. Originating from Spain, the Décima, also known as the Espinella is an octosyllabic (eight syllables each line) ten line verse. It has a rhyme scheme ABBAA CCDDC.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
