The Test Of Devotion...


A pilgrim travels a long way
to reach the shrine
to see the deity
and to touch the relic.

The journey is a big test.
Many give up on the mission
in the half way.
Many look for short-cuts.

One resolute mind unperturbed
by the gruesome challenges
of the holy journey
takes a pilgrim to the desired destination.
