An Urge - Poem by Rigzin Namgyal

an ' urge ' burns in my heart
a wish for me to see
the grand mountains stretching to the sky
and the beauty of being free

i wish to see more of those nomadic lands
that prosper infinitely far, far away
away from the blistering heat in this cosmetic land
where life is so dull and grey

i dream of the rugged mountains singing
covered with sunlit rays of shining gold
of places sung in songs of legend
written with days of gold

i long for the sight of the heavens
of those barren deserts and sparse oasis of green
and my heart aches for the sight
of something it has never seen

i do not know where this road will lead me
for it goes forever on and on
yet i bid it to lead me where ever it may
if i happen to reach Ladakh by the break of dawn :) ;)

    Everyone at one time or another have a sudden urge to
    do something special in life. Go ahead and follow your
    dreams wherever it may lead you. Good luck
