Confessions of a Sentimental Fool

They used to say 
I'm a sentimental fool
Let it be, Let it be.

If it is a weakness
Then it is my strength
Let my weakness be my strength 

It is nothing to me 
Yet it seems to be something 
Like a hungry monster,
It swallows me.

Being nothing is 
not really what it seems 
But how it means,
Let it be a boon or bane 
With out it I'm insane. 

Let it be a pain or gain 
Like my shadow 
It will sustain.

  1. Your poem remind of a "debate". It was about.. "crying" is one's strength or weakness. People say, crying helps them to become stronger! :-)

    Sometimes "nothing" is better than "something"! :-)

    We are all sentimental fools one time or other I believe! If someone is not then he/she must lack a "heart" I think! :)

      **Sometimes "nothing" is better than "something"! ** OF COURSE:)

  2. ஆங்கில கவிதையா... வெயிட் எ நிமிட் பார் 5 நிமிட்ஸ்... //Being nothing is....Let it Be// நல்ல வரிகள். வளரும் வயதில் "Beatles" என்று அழைக்கப்படும் ஆங்கில இசைக்குழுவின் பரம ரசிகன் நான். Let it Be என்ற உங்கள் வார்த்தையை படித்ததும் அவர்களின் "Let it Be", பாடல் நினைவிற்கு வந்தது. நல்ல பதிவு, தொடர்ந்து எழுதுங்கள்.


  3. // Like a hungry monster,
    It swallows me.// Exactly! Let it be! :)
    Nice Mythily. Sometimes I too feel am an emotional idiot :)
