Alone Traveller


I am an alone traveler
to pass through the universal life

I asked so many, some responded
some regretted, some left me in the mid-path
finally, i adopted the incantation
of Kavi Guru, 'EKLA CHALO RE'.

Now, I am a solitary traveller
of this universal path
to complete the journey and
make my journey ease

Sometimes, it makes me to think
everyone has come alone in this world
and will go alone from this world

So, I am a solitary traveller
in my universal journey
to discharge my all duties
what are entrusted to me

I do not feel myself to be unfortunate
and leave my all assignment incomplete
and surrender myself in the mid-way
only for the rescue of myself



In the decay of my life
my each organ of my body
will prove to be failure
except my soul to complete
the eternal journey to reach
the eternal aptitude.

    Being a lone traveler has always been a subject matter of the most deep and mystic poetry, we all are the solitary travellers, you have discussed the same in a very clear diction...! ! ! (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
