Homecoming of Lazarus


That last drop to the home
After 9 months of Graveyard Shift
When you know you don’t have to work in Night Shift anymore
That feeling of returning home from the border after an year
The nostalgic feeling of being who you were
It is like you were in a constant battle with life
And the war has finally end
It is like you return back from the war
With memories full of your mind
The memories you can live your life with
But you look forward to life
To see how simple things in life can now make a difference to you
You are a changed man
You appreciate everyone who makes a difference in your life
You are careful about the words you say
You are a pleasant being
And you want to live a delightful life
It is like growing flowers in your garden
You want to water them
You want to nurture them
You want to see them bloom completely
And you want to experience the aroma of your garden
You want to feel alive
You are looking forward to life
You are looking forward to live.
To the days of struggle and
to the days coming ahead
Cheers to Life !
Cheers to Life !

  1. This poem is so elastic, Displaying mixtures of survivors guilt and pleasure. Marking the territory of a survivor. The feelings and pressure of the style of war and the joyous nurture and the life of a man after returning home safe at the end of a far. Beautiful.
    As far as i can tell, it relates to your own, personal war in life and Cheers to you for returning home safe and looking forwards to the time afterwards!
