Gold Star - 18,264 Points (17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Calm water

I dropped stone in calm water
Something appeared from under water
All round waves coming out one by one
As if in hurry to rush and meet someone

I was mood less and this prompted me
To go in isolated place to feel little free
Away from noisy scene and near the nature
Everything seemed dangerous to me for sure

Why do all the troubles come in bundles?
Why people feel so jealous and create hurdles?
I had no answer for other people with their mentality
I was thinking fresh from its totality

Our mind is devil's workshop
But good place too for building the hopes
It revives hope even if there is no possibility
Refills the energy with full hope to prove ability

I found no answer straightway
Yet it gave me hope not to be carried away
There can be set backs in life for short duration
It may some times lead you to unnecessary frustration

I threw stone at little distance
But all the waves came back at once
It inspired me to think with close look
I could have possibly not got the clue from any book

We have hardly any chance to solve it at first instant
We remain so much depressed and think of present
Tomorrow does strike in any form and give birth to uncertainty
Human weakness to commit an error in poor quality

What did it reveal to me in fact?
Everything depends on our own act
If we pass on the stage peacefully
I think litmus test can be passed off successfully
