3000 miles

Space and time,
Aurora’s and some Sunshine;
Captivating and intruiging,
Inspiring – dilemma of life!
Few steps to the future;
Bind us more stalwartly to our past,

When the stakes were high,
We departed from our youth,
Rejoicing in the company of drudgery;
3000 miles away for my turn,
Many moments in darkness;
In the run!
I am the travesty of my own deeds,
Adolescence kicked off!
Eons back!
And today I want to touch the breeze;
Trembling! I want to walk the freeze,
Break the embargo!
Accompany me to those pristine trees,
Raise a toast!
Ferry me to the north of the river,
Carry me!
Carry me to the Sea!

Unbound today;
I sense inclusiveness,
One with the soil,
One with my being and freedom;
Winding roads following those rhythms;
Rhythm of the sea hitting the shore,
Rhythm of the poor, looking for more,
Rhythm of the sky always moving,
Of life always growing!
I can sense the entirety of the soul;
When it grows old,
When life touches the end of the line,
End of darkness,
Beginning of a new Time!!!

Half Way!

Half way from childhood and half way to death,
I look at my epoch, am I too late?
I advocate my deeds in my own court,
I am the judge, my verdict, I wrote!
I am the journey, I am the road.

Darkness is absence of light;
Bondage – when no one fights,
Flawed – When you are not right;
Browbeaten- When there is no stride!

Our ingenuity is no different than many,
Few never discovered themselves till the end;
Opportunity lies in the edge and sometimes in the bend,
Your expeditions never end when you stop;
Never when you drift off,
Sometimes you find yourself when you are lost!
In the epicentre of humanity
There is hope,

Half way through life I ride,
With more vigour against all tide;
Sanity multiplied all the way;
Today it’s my sun and I make my hay!!!
