Poem “The Value of Things” by Drisha Sehgal
They say “you don’t value the things you have today”,
Yes, I agree with them,
For all the things I’ve lost,
And seen them others possess,
For all the things I wish I could get back,
And never knew it when I had them.
Now I look forward,
For someone else,
To do what I was supposed to do,
To be who I was supposed to be,
To have all my lost possessions.
There’s nothing I can do but wail and watch,
Till time heals all the wounds it gave,
And with a final blow which knocks me down,
Tears all the dreams and makes no sound,
I lose the grip of all my hope,
And walk with a bent head,
To my so-called home.
