Poem -

I will Sing

I will Sing

I will not grow faint of the melodies 
Born of my tongue
I will stomp through the yards with abundance of joy
In the secret palm of the realms

Yes, I will sing 
The songs my grandma taught me in ancient of my time
The songs of praise and of soothing sound
I will sing

If I can cry rivers through my laughter
Then why not rejoice through my agonies

I will collect and pack together the right words like poets do
And with bloody patched wounds
I will clear my chords and heal the heart

Through the melodious pitch
I will allow my pains to flow out from the depths of my veins
I will sing the songs of praise
Because the redemption’s favour picks

I have been tossed, stirred, and turned a million times
And even if I try to tell, nobody else but I will understand 

Hence, I will continue to sing amid my calamities
I will sing even when I cannot let out a voice
Because my heart does it better
I will sing the songs of gratitude

Because I made it through all kinds of pain
I will sing
I will sing from the peak of mountains
Yes, I will keep singing….
Until my five senses can no longer respond to any sound
I will keep on singing…
