I walked.
In an unknowing path.
No body was there.
But I was there.

From dawn to dusk.
The road was a lust.
Thorns spread here and there.
But I was there.

When left in dark.
My shadow went from my park.
Burning a candle on the way.
I created my way.
Keeping the dark away from here.
I was there.


Sometimes heart got hurt.
Tried to make a new hut.
That also vanished in storm.
Making the way of one more thorn.
Happily accepted the challenge.
As I knew I can manage.
Not having a sleep.
But from inside, I did bleed.
Inconvenience spread everywhere.
But I was there.

The cycle continues always.
What will happen no body knows.
That is not in our hands.
To beat the unwanted, resists in our hands.
Nothing persist always.
Everything has its ways.
Good and bad moments will come.
The challenge lies in how to overcome.
In the past.
I was there.
And today also…
I am here…
