This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 12; the twelfth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following
Blog a Ton

I shudder at the sound of a barking dog
Fearing it might approach me
Slouch myself at one end of the wall
Till a helping hand reaches me

Immobile as I sit on the fleet of stairs
Hearing the footsteps of passers by
Somewhere deep within I pray
For yet another peaceful day

The fear of unknown continues to grip
Fanatic, I get, with every slip
I look up again, and pray to thee
How I wish, I could see.

Heyyy Viyoma,
am visiting you here for the first time and I am pleased to meet you! Your poem was indeed very touching.
And I feel it would have had the same impact without the pic too..:D
This can be easily taken up as a social causes message to promote eye donations too..Xcellent job..ATB for BAT-12..
