Journey Sans Destiny

I had set upon a journey, far and long,
For years I travelled with my luck along;

A journey, one of a thousand distances,
One look and tired felt all my glances;

With me, of seven colors, were my dreams,
And treaded along, of hope, few gleams;

Even not a single destination became mine,
Proposed I, but disposed the divine;

My hand gained not any color of rainbow,
In utter dark, faded every single glow;

As in a short flash after a thunder,
All my dreams were torn asunder;

The destination was destiny not for me,
My courage failed me or my

The judgement and the reward- were all yours,
So was the hazy, stoney untreaded course!

I returned home just a tired wayfarer,
My dreams, my hope- all lost in despair;

For my heart's longing for eternal mirth,
Ended in adopting every sorrow of earth.
