Not a retreat…….

It is sometimes very difficult to say anything. The magnanimity of destiny and events that unfold in the course of life, the questions, leave you numb. It takes one second for life to either run faster than its normal pace or to stop and become stagnant. You then have a choice to make; whether to wait patiently to see what is next or to strive endlessly, everyday, to make the best of what you have.


“Do not let me take a retreat

And go back again,

I have nurtured every breath;

and wished every wish.

I have been as far as the horizon

Beyond my vision.


Do not let me take a retreat

From being fancied by the moon,

That grows every night;

The stars that carry so many secrets.

I have been as far as the stretch of the sky

Beyond my beliefs.


No, I will not take a retreat

It is a full circle

Where I start again;

Let go of old dreams

Harness and cherish new ones

And get drenched in the rain.”
