Poet - II

After harrowing hours
hoping to see the day, you arrive
at the end of a tunnel, and find
a misty twilight.

You watch a dying sun,
bloody wounds on firmament
and glittering streetlights.

Yet on you trudge,
for the road shines ahead
and you’re not bothered
by the nagging shadow.

  1. "Yet on you trudge,"

    Or Yet you trudge on,

    Arun, the imagery is infused with emotion.

    The ending is really good.

  2. Thanks Chen-ou, the original was "Yet you trudge on", but I later changed it as suggested by a friend. Lol.
