Point Of No Return


Trillion, billion, million,
seconds, minutes and hours
thousands of days and weeks
hundreds of months, many years
and a few decades melted
to form tiny sands of time
numerous grits, concretes
pebbles and stones
and a few bed of rocks
as they cooled down and petrified
on which I walked, ran, halted
completing my stipulated journey
fulfilling the desire of Someone
whom I never saw, never came across
but only heard my companions saying
there He was always above us
busy keeping accounts of our every moves
while always I reached a place
where it was engraved on rocks
' The point of no return' I saw
as I moved from farther to the farthest
knowing by then I was travelling
on an eternal sphere of time!
