Realisation - Poem by Mallika Tripathi
Listening to the music of soul,
I suddenly realised I was surrounded by the lethal Vipers,
Shapeless, soundless but too venomous
I got motionless, beheld them approaching my inner-self
Like a silent killer.
Felt the warmth of thy slimy skin breathing over me,
Countless sparkling eyes glaring at me as if fuming,
The vision astounded me, forcing me to grapple for my life.
But to my surprise it was not the vipers,
Rather the deadly darkness,
Engulfing me, scaring me, tormenting my inner soul
I battled to speak, murmured few words, cried for help,
But all in vain, it was too late,
The gloom covered me, precipitated my passing,
While departing I discerned a glimmer of light,
The heavenly presence blessing me with eternity.
I realised the fear was self induced
I was very much alive and the darkness was like a springboard
Giving way to pristine age
Full of ardour and vigour- a new beginning
The stygian gloom didn't deepen my soul
Suddenly the beauty of black fascinated me
It was darkness that made me relish
The serenity of white, the piousness, the tenderness
Deep down in my heart I felt grateful to
The majestic presence of black that bestowed upon me
The spiritual awakening of my soul.
