Journey

Updated on June 14, 2017

I see a world so intricate,

The universe laughs out it,

Lord of the world drives it,

And senses are too fast.


The bus gets slowed down,

Ticket is like a lease of life,

Paid for it to ride the bus,

Have to get down at a point.


Some guys have left the bus,

At the sight of the destination,

And others wait for their turn,

Everyone is bound to get down.


The bus will continue to move,

And a world'll be there to watch,

Halts will be there to get down,

And the daily riding will go on !

Journey

Riding a bus on any day,

Is evanescent yet so deep,

I enter in the world inside,

Everyday and come out it.


The world we watch today,

Queer it turns the next day,

The bus moves like the earth,

Windows cry, the engine roars.


I feel like surging fast ahead,

Someone moves my world,

I have to sit calm and quiet,

To think where to get down.


My mind flaps as a bird in flight,

I think of temporal and ethereal,

Why this world is so fleeting ?

My mind races like the wheels.

      Yes Harishprasad, life is like a bus ride. The problem us knowing where to get off or to stay on to the end. I once caught a bus home in Brisbane and went to sleep. I was supposed to get off at stop 34 and didn't wake up until it reached the depot 'stop 78'. It was almost midnight, I had to phone a cab to take me home. It cost me a fortune. Great poem, you always make the reader think. Voted up.

      A very interesting incident of your life and such a memorable one ! John. I bet you will never feel the pinch the extra bucks you spent on travel back to your home. Perhaps this incident stands out among the so many journeys you would have made by the bus. I often ride on buses and it gives so many pleasant experiences. A thought arose in me to express my gratitude to this fascinating thing that we call a bus. This poem is my tribute to the bus, a lovely mode of travel for the common people. Thanks for your kind visit to this hub and your beautiful comments. Thanks for voted up also.

      'Tis time to rise, you do not want to miss the bus! that was great Harishprasad! It is so true. Each of us rides the bus through life and either we choose where to go or we just ride to nowhere. I voted that up and straight across, (except F), plus Pinned and shared.
