Road

images (2)

the long,
never ending looking road,
a reinforced perception,
that it goes on..
a mirage 
a blurred vision,
for it has an end,
the crossroads and junctions
reaching the inaccessible terrain of dead ends
tired traveler of life,
en route upheavals,potholes 
oscillating between ups and downs,
survival of fittest 
and manifestation of 'I' syndromes.
the stopovers and signals,
on the way,
suggesting in low voice,
to slow a bit down,
falling on deaf conscious. 
frightened mortals,
see the falling down of ripen fruits,
dry leafs off the trees on the road side.
at the fag end of journey
or days before that 
he thought 
why he ran after the matter,estates 
why he soured relationship,
inflicted pains,
invested in ego
fell short of loving the co-travelers on the way
why years passed,
under the influence of delusion
and attachments,
all alone, tears of remorse
falling down silently, looking at the open sky,
the only source of strength and hope now
while on the run,
he thought,
why being in a hurry
still a long way to go ...
a paradoxical journey,
the purpose of life
the eternal bliss,liberation from recurring pains,
safely buried under the distractions of ignorance!
the eternal light,
be the guide all along the way,
before the day light,
the twilight,
meet the nightfall!

Kamakhya

    Love this poem! Beautiful lines…”eternal bliss…safely buried under the distractions of ignorance.” Wise and true. Reminding us to stop and realize what really matters on the road of life before too late.
