“Lead yourself from the unreal to the ultimate truth, from the darkness of your mind to a world of light and from the death of ignorance to the immortality of knowledge. Transform your thoughts into actions and make your journey a pleasurable route to a blessed destiny.”

Lies in our subconscious the divination
Of an idyllic world, enamored by infantile chastity
Of the shepherd hearing his lamb’s tender reply
While grazing the folks in the sojourn mountains and valleys.

This happens to be the halcyon harbour
Of an unknown journey to a strange new destination
With a concupiscence to achieve the extremity
Intellect becomes oblivious to the satiety of the peregrination.

Childhood diffuses the beam of the morrow
Leaving fond impression of bygone memories
Unforeseeable fortune should not be the barricade
To disrupt the harmony of the manifold tunes or be the cause for worries.

A material youth juggles with interrogations of basic fulfilments
“When can I buy a new Mercedes Benz?”
“When can I eat out of German Silver?”
“When can I pay off my mortgage?”

Life becomes wretched in such disgraceful pursuit
Rapturous youth departs from the living
Wealth is achieved which might go astray
It’s only the accomplishment of ‘belief’ which lingers with the being.

 In this wondrous promenade leading to the Elysium
Two distinctive souls are united in holy matrimony
It’s the music which creates this melodious strain
Adorning the saunter with either comfort or agony.

A thousand different circumstances contribute to a single journey
It’s the liberty of the self to think, feel and do as he yearns
In this tangible world, is there really a Station?
In the trip it self lies true happiness, not in the ultimate destination.

Such an inevitably arduous journey is meliorated by a truthful comrade
Who stands by in good times and bad, draught, riot, war, king’s court and even after obliteration  
To walk side by side when the rest walks either in front, or behind
Asserting every challenge as a veracious and a hospitable guide.

A journey is like a home to enrich a hankering soul
With no regrets of tomorrow or fear of the future
With sight as blind and spirit as elevated
Get through the hardest instances by taking just one step at a time.

“Life perishes leaving behind a miraculous wonder
The good deeds in the world to seek and ponder.
The twilight sky after the set of the golden sun
Brings gentle breeze for the living to stay warm.
The nostalgic melody continues its mellifluous hum
In this beautiful journey, holding hands, keep moving along.”

Surely a journey is defined by an individual. A journey signifies change, it signifies ambition, it signifies your grit, determination and above all the friendship and loyalty of your near and dear ones who steer you through the tough task.As splendid as the saying is :
Journey is the Reward
It was pleasant being back, it was even great reading the post. All the very best

A good piece of poetry. And here the best part:

A material youth juggles with interrogations of basic fulfilments
“When can I buy a new Mercedes Benz?”
“When can I eat out of German Silver?”
“When can I pay off my mortgage?”

Good job again!

Travel in life very nicely projected. One needs to keep in mind that it is the journey which is more important for happiness that the destination. Same holds good for marriage too. Well composed.
