The Journey of LIFE




A seed sown
Nascent
In the cocoon of womb
Snug
Secure
Bursting with aspirations
Restless
To escape the confining walls
And flee in to the waiting world.

The world
An illusion?
Nay!
A reality?
By all means!

The infant
Transformed
Into a toddler
Learning the first
Lessons of life
Ingrained
And etched deeply
Both
On the velvety couch of the heart
As well as 
On the razor sharp psyche.

The journey meanders
Like a lusty river
In its quest
To merge with the Ocean.
So does the journey of life
Even as you 
Gather pebbles
Scattered lazily
Along the challenge strewn shores.

Thorns and needles
Pricks and Cuts
Roses and Tulips
Fragrant Jasmine
Sacred Lotus
All meant to be mystery laden lessons
From yore.

Let the tears flow
Unbidden.
Let the heart love
Beyond reason.
Let the laughter roar
Challenging the thunder
For you were born
To live
And not merely
To freeze in the snow.

Gather judiciously
The hues of life
Let peace
Find its niche.
Let memories
Be a kaleidoscope
Of a vibrant life
Lived like a king and more.
