Image result for rejection

A pile of mistakes

was my timeline

perplexed and perpetuated ones, filling in every void

Every time an opportunity approached

I was rejected to take it up

Rejected I was, all along

yet I survived the tide

ups and downs never compelled me

to wash up the messes

I piled up all my failures

like a monument to my dismissals

to deck it up finally with a star

that was me, still shining brightly.

Unfurled periods of sleep

the cosy warmth of the blankets

snuggling me

cradling me in its softest arms

where sunshine plays hide and seek

with the beddings

as I braid myself with the pillows and blankets

nothing beats the warmth in the cuddle

appetizing my sleep

like a scrumptious meal to the tummy.
