When prayers don't seem to work
when efforts go in vain.. and when you are fearless,
but tears keep shedding
as you tread your steps leave a trail in blood
...you walk unknowingly and for miles and miles
Aeons pass by, flabbergasted ..
you move on..spellbound
not aware of the destination..
your desire.. to bide the time.
you see a bleak light....too bleak to be sure of its existence..
you crave to be drenched in the Light..
you are conscious still unconscious...
a shadow walks with you ..who's shadow?
you turn back and there is emptiness in that darkness
you look and stare and yet you cannot reckon
you live..and live and live..and then keep on dying..
you die..and die and die..and then keep on living..
your soul aches but body doesn't feel the pain
The thorns on the way let you down...wound..
you fall....and the heart cries in anguish...
nonetheless you don't give up, and long to walk again..
