It is This

Three shades of green,
Two of brown,
One pure white,
It caught my sight.

Stretching into the blue expanse,
With a delicate cloud stuck to it.

As I climbed up,
I saw the blinding sun,
And never ending snow.

Thus I experienced the famous couplet,
"If there is heaven on earth,
It is this, it is this. "

Tomorrow’s the day,
The day, when I shall fly,
When I shall taste the wind,
The day, I dreamt of.

Now I can’t wait,
For tomorrow to come.

Even as I imagine tomorrow,
I remember, I will have to fly away,
Away from what I have,
Away from who I have.

Get some, lose some,
That’s the golden rule…

I Turned Around

From one edge to another,
I saw that day.
Land on both sides, void betwixt.

There was a milestone and it said
“SUCCESS: A Leap Away,
 DISTRESS: The Very Same.”
I knew, one wrong step,
And its Humpty-Dumpty all the way down.

Not that pain scares me, we’re next of kin,
Not that despair haunts me, Not that I don’t dare.

But as I stood there and looked on,
Both sides were the same,
Barren, rocky ground.

Life game me an edge to leap off,

And I turned around.

The Axe

I met a man, staggering along
A desolate path.
When I asked him how he ended up there,
He said, “I took a wrong turn,
And I just couldn’t go back
But I will reach home…
Through the forest”

I pointed out as to how dense it was,
He walked on,
Turned around,
Patted his axe,
And said, “I will cut my way through”.
As he did so, the gleam of his eyes,

Told me he would do it.
