Walking on the hot golden sand…
my feet sank in..and the gold comes out between my toes…engulfing it slowly…I need to move fast…I understand….
Scorching sun…black scorpions…it was all new..
a path I had to tread alone.
I was all alone there and no one knew.
Golden dust all over me…sand dunes deterring me.
I felt so puny and life seemed like a hungry desert which was waiting to feed on me.
My footprints were also momentary.
They disappeared as if there was someone who wanted me to never return,but I saw no one..it was all still n sedentary.
I ran my gaze around like a new born.
the still desert was mocking at me.
How could life be so rude? How do i bear its scorn?
Guess I had a thing called courage.
My eyes caught a blue shimmer far far away.
I ran to reach the water
it was my happiness.
Alas!!! I dipped my hands into a mirage.
My fingers stuck deep in the sand and my feet hurt.
I came way too far but it was all unreal.
I felt doomed i cried but no words came out.
Hopeless and tired I walked again,a lifeless me.
Just when I thought my journey has come to an end, I smelt wet sand… I felt like the wind was calling me.
I turned around and saw sparkling blue water with a beautiful halo of palm tree.
I rubbed my eyes pinched my self
mirage was a past,but this!! was real beauty I agree.
I ran to it like it was the last race of my life.
my feet felt fresh cold water. It drowned my heart in love and faith.
GOD is and will always be there. That moment,during this journey called “LIFE” I got something to hold on to.
Something called “LOVE”
