Love…. Awakening

The more I approach, the farther you seem to drift.

Even as I begin to retreat; you beckon me to come closer

I see you as an oasis, but you seem to be a mirage

Does the light around me cheat, promising visions that never existed;

Or is it my inner light that cease to fathom the beauty ahead;

My grip on the self seem to fade; I’m slipping away to the isolated solitude

Even when I’m away from you, your mind seems to conspire

To bring me back or despise;

Am unable to sense;

But; yeah something tells, it pulls, from the abyss of time,

I have to see the gifts ahead, I have to be responsible.

You sow the seeds of grit and might.

It seems like a death knell, tolling the death of the coward in me.

I hear, I wake up, the slumber seems to be of a distant past

Hazy dreams lead me to promises, yet to be fulfilled;

Promises with a purpose, with a goal to re-discover

The purpose, the prowess and I am made.

I wonder now why should I pretend or run away

If this is the love that awakens me to my duties, responsibilities and promises.



Environment, Society, Rebellion, Music and Adventure are keywords playing in my mind from as long as I remember. A default introvert and an obsessive extrovert, I have strong beliefs and I stand for them. Currently as a Fellow in State Bank of India's Rural Development Fellowship called Youth for India, I plan to share my journey to all.
