☆ Realization…. ☆

Time, like wind,

Often uproots you and throws you

Akin to a muddied yellow leaf

On untrodden paths

Making you feel defenceless!


You realize

The futility of your existence,

You fathom out slowly

That you are a zilch,

You don’t even know

Where your future is going to take you!


In this state of utter helplessness,

One fine day,

The realization dawns

That though the trail

May be of a muddied yellow leaf,

But you are not actually one;

You have the power

To steer your life’s car

With full force and conviction

And take it to a desired destination

With efforts and sincerity!


You insert the key,

You blow the horn,

And then march ahead

Like an enlightened Buddha!
