Hope

There is a time in everyone’s life when we feel confused about the path that we want to choose , when we don’t want to repeat our past mistakes but all we end up is with more confusion . Well few months back I too was in that state of mind and I didn’t know what to do all I wanted was to run away it was then that I wrote this poem . After many days of mulling over I realized there is nothing wrong if we don’t have a map or if we are confused all we need to do is step out and do our best with whatever resources we have and try to build ourselves little by little and leave the rest on future which is unpredictable . It’s not that I am now clear what I am heading towards but the truth is no one is so lets take small steps everyday . Hope you will be able to connect with my poem .

I close my eyes
all I see is fog far and wide .
There is a place I want to explore ,
but I don't know the path to opt for .
So I wonder around ,
like the lost cloud swirling around ,
to the rhythm unknown .
Running away from a maze all alone .

Never had a trail of light to follow ,
I had spent my days and nights in a dark hole,
but I am heading out finally ,
like a butterfly from it's cocoon .
And now ,
I walk along the river so lone ,
on hills so steep and cold ,
because ,
my heart burns with the hope ,
to rebuild the shattered puzzle ,
broken years before .

I am a person who lost her roots ,
a traveller without a map to peep through ,
and still have got a long way to flow through .
With nothing to stick to ,
I am out not to find myself again ,
but to build myself ,
using a fine stroke of brush and paint ,
and who knows what I might paint ?

Never had a trail of light to follow ,
I had spent my days and nights in a dark hole ,
but I am heading out finally ,
like a butterfly from it's cocoon.
And now ,
I walk along the river so lone ,
on hills so steep and cold ,
because ,
my heart burns with the hope ,
to rebuild the shattered puzzle ,
broken years before.

Stones or feathers ,
thorns or rose petals ,
I will collect them all ,
to sculpt the new me ,
and will let the future unfold it's mysteries .
