My Life Is a Collage

My life, of bits and pieces is a collage
My struggle, so well it can camouflage
Once it was broken and strewn around
Into tiny pieces all over the ground
There was neither harmony nor accord
Everything was dismantled off record
Slowly I started picking them one by one
Not quitting until the work is done
When I failed to fill in an empty place
Some angel stepped in with a grace
Making a connection with my heart
Giving me a bit of her/his life's part
I glued them together with will power
Working patiently hour after hour
I worked out the puzzle one piece at a time
I made the bits match and the words rhyme
Creating a new life out of pieces from past
I have a great masterpiece of collage at last

My life is as mine as it is of you
Strange it may sound, but it is true

  1. that was some beautiful piece of rhyming poetry Farida.. Keep blessing such ones!

    Someone is Special

  2. Very creative picture...and a beautiful poem Farida :)

    1. My son is an animator, therefore he helps me in creating good pictures for my blog. I am a lucky mom :)

  3. Do read the poem aloud... and see if you can re-arrange words, delete a few (to gives lines a stable syllabic count)... because the idea and thought connect but the rhythm suffers. Hope to read a revised version soon. :)

    1. I just pour out my feelings in words when they flow in.. I am not expert in creating good poetry with proper rhyme and rhythm. Only the feeling matters to me.
