Rini Shibu

But Why

Few things in life
you wish at midnight
Morning it disappears
like the mist in sunlight
And then unexpectedly
rainbow appears in the sky
Which doesn't last longer
leaving you to cry
Everything happens
In front of your eyes
And you ask yourself
but why

    The saying goes that life is what happens when we are busy making plans. We temper ourselves and become distrustful of patience. Surely to turn just one more page an answer or an expectation will be found or met and yet like the mist and the rainbow they seem to be illusions, doubt darkens the colors but we always retain hope like a gold coin tightly held. The feeling reminding us that we have something special to give.
