The World of Undiscovered Poets: Aroosa Gloomy

Updated on June 11, 2013
Source


Poetry is the night light that keeps the monsters away. Poetry is the sunshine and rainbows that keep the nightmares at bay. Poetry is the warm blanket that protects a child from the bitter cold, and most of all, poetry is the outlet we all need when the world is so hard that we all want to scream. When a child is exposed to darkness many times they will run away to mommy and daddy so they can feel safe again, but sometimes a child embraces the darkness and calls it friend. The poet I would like you all to discover this week was once such a child.

Aroosa Gloomy

With love for her country in her heart, Aroosa describes her country of Pakistan as full of corrupt politicians, and sad people whose eyes still hold the twinkle of dreams for a better day. Aroosa has made it a personal goal of hers to try and bring something good to her people, and strives to better herself through school to achieve this goal.

At the youthful age of 17, Aroosa shows more depth in her poetry than people twice her age, and as she grows older, I can’t help but wonder if her poetry will be the substance that helps change the world. Her style, she describes as pessimistic and dark, but if your read deeper into her words you can see Aroosa has the same twinkle of dreams as the eyes of her people. See for yourself in this original poem of hers.


False Reveries

My childhood with my eyes shut

And I found myself fainting.

I tried to fly,

Towards my destiny,

Barriers and hurdles

All through my way,

Revived me of how

Jubilant were those days,

That once filled me with joys.

Now, bringing along wounds,

Making it difficult for me to live,

Every second cursing me,

Every time I try to figure out emptiness in me.

Suddenly, rustling of leaves brought me back,

I looked around

I saw amazing scenes

My present life gleaming

With sun and moon sitting

Right and left side of me.

Having family, so loving and

Putting garlands around my neck

On my success.

I jerked my head and shun

Took long breath and sighed

For my reveries.

Ah! I wish for this dream to come true.


Aroosa Gloomy began writing poetry at the age of 12, after experiencing a dark period of her life, where Poetry had to lend her loving embrace to help Aroosa to survive. Encouraged to explore her poetic soul further, by Sir Usmani her English teacher, Aroosa continues to expand her mastery of poetry so that she can arm herself against the inner turmoil she fights on a daily basis. Poetry has embraced Aroosa, and Aroosa gives back to the world of poetry through her beautiful words and her art work.

      Thanks for sharing something about the young poetess, Aroosa. I have read a few of her poems at Triond. I think she is mature way beyond her years. But I wonder what has caused her to have such a pessimistic view of life?!

      Thanks for sharing.

      I asked Rajan, but she said it would just add insult to injury, and I know enough of when to respect someones privacy. It just adds a bit of mystery to the whole story.

      I think all of Triond is proud of the young lady. She is well deserving of this article.

      I found Aroosa on Triond. She is a brilliant writer/poet and artist.

      Philly, your tribute is wonderful.

      Interestingly, I have also published an interview with Aroosa on HubPages.

      This is a beautifully written tribute. Poetry is indeed a comfort. A few years ago London Underground had a project called something like Poetry on the Tube - in which selected poets had their poems displayed on posters in the trains.

      Thank you 2patricias. There are so many poets that should be recognized, that any project which brings some out to the forefront is good in my book.
