I fear…


I fear to be fearful

I am scared of losing hope.

As the layers of my optimism

Get peeled off, day after day

My courage shrinks.

I try to grasp and clutch at

The impotent vestiges of bravado

That I so desperately want to feel.

But, I fail.

My waning courage,

Like a tide abandoning the shore

Fails to hold my fears at bay.

What has happened?

How did it come to this?

In the battle for life,

As we grapple with the unseen

Is hope on the brink of extinction?

Yes, nowadays, I fear to be fearful.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
