THE JOURNEY UNKNOWN...



Far, beyond the dim horizon, begins the incredible odyssey of the unknown
A thousand-miles to trod, starting with a single step
The mysterious journey...neither visible, nor reasoned by mortal senses
A forlorn path indeed, with Time as the sole companion
A reminder to cherish every moment of the road to destination
Stumbling upon rocks and pebbles, yet the urge to survive
At times the spirit soars in happiness, at times, plummets in misery
Because every twist and turn promises a new Hope
Hoping for a rosy promenade on a velvety green
Relishing the fond memories of the past
Sweetly progressing towards Death, the inevitable
Accepting it as a fulfilment, a culmination for the reunion of lost souls
Only smiling faces, serene lips- no rhetoric, no funeral music, no tears, no regret
Ameliorating every step for the life beyond, which is yet to be explored
For the end promises a new beginning
And the mysterious journey continues...



Inspired by the song of the Hindi film "SAFAR" 



ज़िन्दगी का सफ़र है ये कैसा सफ़र ,कोई समझा नहीं कोई जाना नहीं I
है ये कैसी डगर चलते हैं सब मगर, कोई समझा नहीं कोई जाना नहीं II

Beautiful poem. Life's journey is all about the journey itself. Since we know what's at the end, we try to delay it and prolong our life's wishes.

Do read my poem, The Never Ending Road
It isn't exactly on the same lines but I was reminded of it when I read yours!

@D2
Thank you. But I think you are an expert in putting abstract ideas into concrete vision.
