Riches to rags

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 36; the thirty-fifth 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. The theme for the month is “and then there were none”

A perfect life was wanted

Free of stains and disorder

True feelings to be hidden

across the smile borders.

Too beautiful Β to last

a picture perfect story

was now his wonderful past.

Too fragile, yet broken

his story is in the minds, though

not spoken.

Surrounded by humans,

one he could call not friend

his life went on

till the end.

A beautiful house,

an amazing car

were all traded

and then there were none

he could call a friend.

The subject of jokes

remembering his past,

he thinks, “Was it worth it”?

The money, the life.

Pulling Β out the weapon

he points it at self

praying at the last moment

he forces the trigger to go.

A stone is erected

speaking volumes of the unfair world,

from riches to rags,

a man who has lived through all.

  1. Very neatly written Harshal… Although a little sad but the job is beautifully done.. This was my 5th or 6th poem of the day, and the last one too, and I’m not at all disappointed… I’m sleeping with a good read..

  2. sad but true story of many . . the writing was lucid yet striking . .if only people would hold onto hope a bit stronger . . your poem was a raw depiction of reality . . beautifully crafted πŸ™‚
