On The Road of Life…

The road goes on,
You travel along,
Run, walk and crawl
The miles with a song.

The road is bright,
The road is dark,
With bumps in it
Or smooth stretches to park.

You carry on
In its twisted paths,
Shadows and lights
In the aftermath.

The road has views,
Exhilarating, dreary,
Soulful, uplifting,
Some vistas scary.

You pass them by,
Your entire being alive.
The endless evergreen,
So pure, so naive.

You pass them by,
So wretched, so conflicted!
The dull, dry lands
All lonely, desolated!

Or you pass them by,
Indifferent to the sight,
Whatever may come across,
In the day or at night.

The end of road,
You see the light,
You either cross over
Or didn’t travel right!

Lost At Sea…

images (36)

I am so lost,
Floundering in this sea,
Made of humans,
No landmark I see!

Strewn it is with,
Faces familiar and strange,
Choked it is with
Heartbreak, happiness
Sweet love, broken dreams!

Paradoxical emotions,
Create the chaos,
Churn and burn.
Underneath the surface,
A deadly maze!

The depths I can’t gauge,
Just know that I’m drowning,
Deep and deep.
Can’t feel the floor,
Beneath my feet.

My arms flail around,
I can’t stay aloft!
I fight against the currents,
A battle I have lost!
The final end is near…

The water closes,
Above my head.
Darkness surrounds me,
In peaceful embrace.
Gently, softly, I let go all
A beatific smile on my face…
