The Far Horizon

H.Sanbika is medically oriented by degree though she's not practicing it currently, Her passion on scribbling thoughts dragged her here.

“It was so risky and so scary, and yet at the same time, so beautiful. Maybe the truth was, it shouldn't be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something's difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder -if not impossible- to lose.”

― Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride


The Far Horizon

She stands over the shore

What she deems, I'm never sure

For she gazes at the horizon

Like praying at the moon

She doesn't have anything

But enough to get by living

She finds it exhausting to breathe

And hardly goes to bed

She stands there day and night

Waiting for a ship in sight

But when one comes, she let it pass

She's mounted like a pole of brass

I wonder why she didn't wave

Then saw the chains under her sleeve

I wonder why she didn't screamed

Then saw her lips were fully seamed

Her eyes besought so far

ferrying her beyond the stars

Yet she's still hoisted there

Quietly waiting at the shore
