JUDGEMENT

Even after all what resulted from my ignorance
The agony, pains, all night cries that followed
The feelings that are of shame, despair and regret
In all these and more, even about your verdicts
There was a little portion that kept on saying
You are strong and can survive against all odds

The happening brought down my self-esteem
To deny was easier but each day brought reality
Every word from man reminds me of the actuality
Opening my eyes to daybreak, I wake from my dream
Daily I wish I could relive life and turn the clock back
But deeply inside of me, I believe I did my best.

The world collapsed with the wall of my protection
Exposed, unprotected and powerless to my adversary
The voice travelled less and my strength ended abruptly
Decisions and more decisions that could not defend me
Later on, I became free thinking of thousands of way out
Now I relax, retrospect and agree that I did all I could

Though power failed and muscle became undependable
The brain befuddled with a lot of solutions and escape
Actually I have learnt of the powerful tactics and training
Read about the way of escaping and breaking free but
Realised that easier said than done until faced with reality
In all these I know and believe: I could not have done better

To you, if it were you, your power and tactics would pave way
It was me, and my power and strategy did all they could
In whatever situation, I am through, with a new strength
A new beginning, a new life, a new way of thought
Came out a better informed person with strange abilities
Ready to forgive self and others, as life goes on. Yes
