No reason to cover my head

I had no say in the beginning
Neither did I chose where to be
Do not care where and when it will end
Will deal with the hand that was dealt to me

Life’s a stage that I will stride alone
Supporting actors may be many
Invisible director may be pulling the string
My performance not comparable to any

Why should I be ashamed of my act
I am not indebted to anyone
Not the one who may be pulling the string
It’s me who controls what’s being done

Survive or thrive, does it matter
What matters that I’m here and now
I will keep rowing the boat
Until the time comes to take my final bow

Answers to an unknown past and future
Neither going to ask nor required
Will perform my act to my best
There is no shame in failure
No euphoria in success
What matters that I exit
Being true to myself
No reason to cover my head

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. I love this poem. I relate to it in the sense that we are born and die alone. Sometimes we have this idea that there is such a thing as life partner but there are several people who are our partners in different things at different times… also that there is no need to live in order to impress or meet anyone’s expectations and whats most important is if we lived true to ourselves (and not other people or religion)…At least this is what I’ve taken away from this 🙂

  2. I really enjoyed your poem! Excellent iambic pentameter; your style is somewhat like my own… The last part intrigued me though. It was very hard hitting and brought the point home well… You are a very creative writer 🙂
