' Paths '

The paths are well known of thirst and hunger
The paths were paved by needs and searches
There are different types of paths
There are some paths for eyes
There are some paths for legs
There are some paths for minds
There are some festooned paths leads to wounds

Paths filled with thorn leads to honey
Paths covered with memories remind our past
Paths overwhelmed with creativity leads to prosperity
The paths paved with discussion leads to goal

There are few single paths deviate from main lane,
Like hermit, he disowned all for sanctity.
There are few paths (joins) harnesses all lanes
From poor villages like a mother.
There are some paths like bashful maiden
Hidden by dense forest.

There are some paths in countryside exhibit less green
And shadows and charms to merge with city lanes,
There is few paths get abhorrence of city lanes
And keep far away maintaining distances.

There are ample numbers of paths,
Straight paths,
Shortcut paths,
Secret paths, and
The paths with full of transparency,
And a few paths meet with dead ends;

Some paths may bring power-and
Many paths proceed to picnic spots;
Some leads to holy places-and
Many paths take to judicial courts;
Some paths meant for prisons-and
Many paths lead to battlefields
Some paths laid for graveyards-and
Many paths committed for futures

But there is no path exist for humanism
And, hence the man has reached the destination.

    dear anush........we have various paths in front of us to lead to some kind of destination......but the real one we choose is the one leading to god head, which might take one lifetime, or many according to our deeds, which makes our may be a straight path to reach him, if we are spiritually awakened with knowledge.......or it may be the other one, which meanders through jungles, hills and dales, and takes life time to find the one goal of life to reach the god head..liked your thoughts, and how you went about writing this lovely poem.

    It is true, each and every one of us is connected and will certainly meet at one time or another in either this life or the next.
    All paths envitably cross with each other and intersect time and time again before merging back along destiny's ultimate path to salvation.
