It is never too late for anyone to discover his/herself in life. Discovering this talent of writing makes me feel elated...
"No time for time", I have been here
All along, I have tried all I could, done
All I can yet continuing in the same to
Remove the burden of loneliness,
Yea, the occasional surge of depression
From my deepest being when it happens like this
Yet no permanent changes then decides he
To again take the last step which is uncommonly
Used to remove the burden of depression,
Yea pains of loneliness from his being
By stepping out of the garden
He stepped out of the beautiful garden
Int the larger society to refresh himself,
Cool his brain and mingle with souls
Covered by flesh, he however hopes this
Will not be turned to another day of reproach
For days like this, he used to meet with
Hard hearted beings who instead of
Alleviating his troubled soul will heap
Up another burden on the soul, weighing
Him down by their hard and heavy words.
For the first time ever, stepping outside
Of his beautiful garden gives him deeper
Joy, indescribable joy while looking back
Brings to his heart heaviness and sadness.
Then he believes something must be in the offing for him
He soon gets to the streets, joy still envelopes
His naive heart like when he was in his garden
Viewing the interactions of the animals amongst
Themselves. Now he knows something
Lies somewhere, something is about to happen.
It is either something to be seen or to be
Possessed or both is in the pipeline.
Whatever it is he desires to get that thing
So that his joy will be full and before he can
Contemplate, dream or think of returning to the beautiful garden
All he sees does not ignite the light of
Joy in him, yet the joy is there while the
Thoughts of returning gives him sadness.
Surprisingly, he did not meet with anyone who
Will weaken him, someone whose words would plunge himinto further depression.
He continues in his journey sight seeing
The places he has been familiar with as if
He was new in the land looking at the streets
Again and again as if he knows what he is looking
For, but he knows when he sees what would make him happy his heart would leap up.
On getting to a juncture he sees a damsel and
Accordingly his heart races fast, the light was
Ignited it was as if fuel has been poured on the
Fire that is already burning. "This must be it"
He said to himself.
