Is There a Place Called ‘There’? (Poem)

There!

A place well desired

A place or thing we unconsciously seek for

A new and unforeseen treat in man

A mystery that storms the world

A place that has not been named

Understanding this, and I ask,

Is there a place called ‘there’ for us?



Born with the gift of speed

Having insight to one’s capability

Enrolling as an athlete

Progressively getting to the top in athletics

But been crippled by events called accident

Not getting to the desired peak

And a question is asked

Is there a place called ‘there’ for such a person?



Born into a lovely home

And natured to grow, with great attention

But had an enormous strength entrapped in her bosom

Looking for ways to release the strength,

Rages about everything and everyone

And a question is asked

Why all the anger?

Is ‘there’ a place or thing we unconsciously seek for?



Born healthy and perfectly

To a lovely home

On growing to a young man

Discovers a tree-like growth

From his face, hands and legs which were incurable

And a question is asked,

What is he metamorphosing into?

Is that one of the many unforeseen treat in a man?



The Earth, a perfect design

Made of fields and layers

Magnet field for navigation

Ozone layer for protection

But there is a place called bermuda triangle

A place without Earth magnet field

And a question is asked

Is that one of the many mysteries that will storm the world?



Having discovered so many invention

This age is being named as “Jet age”

But after the discovery of space

There is no known house built in space

And no public transportation yet installed

And a question is asked

Is that one of the many yet-to-discover inventions?


Searching for answers

I found in the old good book

“He hath made everything beautiful in his time”….. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

Then I understand

That ‘there’ is a place for everyone, and everything

Yes, it may not be the way we imaging or desire

But the way the creator sees as beautiful

So if there is a place called ‘there’, we will definitely get there!
