Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

One Thousand And One Dimensions!

I don't want to choose something new.
Be whatever new comes in front of me.
Nor I want to take a U turn.
Nor do I want to run away.
Nor do I want to be standstill.
Nor I want to look behind
Nor to look into any horizon beyond
Nor to gaze on why the other side is greener.

But definitely..
I will keep on moving forward
Without changing the path.
But this time......
I want to rewrite whatever comes my way.
Everything will be looked upon with a different dimension.
Everything will be handled with different approach.

I prefer to go deep down the root of tree
Check out for what hampered its growth
What made the weeds and pest to grow?
What made it to dried down since long?
I will check out all loopholes
And treat it deep down the roots.

Choosing a new path
Planting a new tree
Sprouting a new dream
Without changing self
Is not a solution for any
As the things will move in same way only
In whatever path I travel.

For I want to bridle the unbridled horse
Which lost control of self.
If I can conquer self
Then there is nothing in this world
Which I cannot strive for
With my strong will and determination.

It seems that time too is favouring me now
It gave me a chance to grow stronger than ever before
As I have to travel far beyond from here
My time is not halted here.
I have to travel a lot...

Thereby Looking a way forward!

    Going deep down into the root to look for the cause of decay instead of nursing a new one to see it to be a victim
    of same decay brings no solution...............Geetha.............rather finding a cause and treat aright is the right action
    ........again a great write................ (Report) Reply

    For I want to bridle the unbridled horse

    Then there is nothing in this world

    There are unbridled passions within us....! When we learn to conquer the self, we have learnt everything... Instead of looking for new paths... tread through the same path, overcoming the hurdles on the way...! Instead of planting new saplings and leaving them unattended, nourish and nurture the tree already planted.... I love this poem for the wisdom that glistens between lines and a 10 (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
