Home Life With Arms Wide Open

With Arms Wide Open

by Praveen Kumar

Inspired by the song with the same name by Creed, this is one poem that has different meanings.

with arms wide open - With Arms Wide Open

standing before the one and only,
i stand with arms wide open
waiting to receive the judgement
that is going to be delivered

my life is about to change
and i close my eyes
hoping the time that i have to live
is given a much needed boost!

with bated breath
i wait, unsure of
what the powers to be
are thinking!

after days of struggle
to reach a consensus,
it has come to this,
time to take the decision is now!

as i take a breath
i wait to know my fate
i wait to know if my
appeal to live life
has been granted
or denied!

i wait
with arms wide open
ready to receive the judgement
that is going to be handed out to me!

Don’t seal your fate with this. And be prepared for the worst as well. Cos life isnt about all this alone. 🙂

Hope you take this in the right sense.

What a great little poem to start the day. Very well constructed with flickers of vivid imagery.

i wait
with arms wide open
ready to receive the judgement
that is going to be handed out to me!

Love the ending.
