I know not who is to blame

It was none other than the thunder that brought about the rain,

Someone walked beside me,

I know not his name.

.

He carried an umbrella, though it was in vain,

So I ask in a gentle voice,

Would you tell me your name?

.

Are you the stranger that walks with me, every time it does rain?

Are you the one who believes in me, just as if you feel my dreaded pain?

.

There is that tiny whisper of a name I wish I had gained,

When I am in chains unseen, how can freedom be attained?

.

It may be the thunder or the clouds above that hide my hidden pain,

It may be that the world is lost to a plunderer’s gain.

I know not who is to blame.

.

I walk under an umbrella held by someone, I know not his name,

He shields me from the ravages of rain,

He shields me but it is in vain.

  1. Oh, this is very a touching poem, beautiful in its construction too. I could resonate with it. You write so well, my dear Shobana, every line’s just flowing smoothly and leading to the next. I love it with the whole of my heart.

  2. This is perfect for anyone who knows that going through tough times can be so lonely. That umbrella is a beautiful symbol of faith. Have bookmarked the short story on Inkitt. Will give it a read. 🙂
