My Destination - Poem by Rekha Mandagere

Dreams flash on by the hundreds
And the desires sprout on by the millions
There is a surging urge to scale
The mountains that caress the heavens
But there is a looming fear-can I do it really?
But hope wins over fear-I shall do it!
Optimism is built deep in my being! !
I swear so by the stars in the cosmos
The Sun and moon, the two eyes of the sky
The five elements of which I am made
Beyond the pale of all doubt
I shall reach the pinacle of success
The summit where the THREE TIMES meet!
