Milestone or Tombstone?

The NaPoWriMo challenge is to write a poem a day for the month of April.

Milestone or Tombstone?


Emotional Milestones

are tombstones

of our heartbreaks

and triumphs.


Sorry reminders

of our

mistakes and

proud monuments

of eternal love.


Milestones show

the soul’s path

and its

coveted destination.

  1. Sulekha, in this poem, you have managed to beautifully and perfectly describe the meaning of emotional milestones! We live and learn! 🙂

    1. Yes we have, Rimly. Life takes us to places we never imagined we would go to, thank you for reading and and for your lovely comment.

  2. Bellissima 🙂 Our highs and lows… the waves of destiny… and our own decisions…

    Loved how you put those contrasts together…
