Ailing Fighter!

I turn the pages from the past,

Memories from which have still not run fast.

I write and edit,

And see how my own words misfit.

I wonder if ‘I’ really wrote that?

And rate it again for being it so tad.

And yet you call me a writer,

While all I deem myself is an ailing fighter!

  1. The thoughts from the past that troubles our mind, that urge to express, when inked on paper by you makes the words look beautiful and we admire that and label you as a writer with a beautiful or may be an aberrant soul
