My destination finally came near !

I was walking along the road

on a cloudy lonely night

without knowing

which way to go - straight, left or right.


The road was not easy to walk on,

steep, even and then low,

Some turns at interval on either side,

what should I do I didn’t know.


Often I stumbled in darkness

as clouds covered the moon,

I wanted someone to guide me

but who could come there soon?


Someone whispered in my ears

“If you turn left or right,

the road will take you nowhere,

you will go round and round all night”.



All of a sudden there came the wind

it’s velocity was quite strong,

It slowed down my pace for a while

but didn’t stay for too long.



Clouds started to dissipate,

moonlight was over me.

I was not walking alone,

my shadow I could see.


I kept on walking on the main road,

I was tired but didn’t have fear,

The night was over, it was dawn,

my destination came near.

I love the picture, and the story behind it. Walking with no direction is most definitely something everyone will get, whether metaphorically or even literally. Well done.

Kamalesh, another great piece of writing. Reminds me of the journey of life. We have our ups and we have our downs, but if we keep everything together, it turns out just fine.

thelyricwriter - It's great to have your beautiful comment on this hub too. You are so good and supportive, hearing from you is a great pleasure. Yes my dear friend you are right ,the concept of the poem is the journey of our life.

Sometimes we feel lost in this world, cannot choose the right path to reach our goal, we get confused, need God's help and guidance, there are obstacles as we go along but if we pick up courage and go ahead with an optimistic mind, with God's grace we begin to see everything clear , overcoming problems becomes easy and we can attain our objectives.

Thank you once again for your visit and comment.

Trust you are all well.

Best Wishes,

Kamalesh
