New Horizons - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni

After each sunset
The nightly shadows
Silently creep in
And spread their wings.

Sitting beneath a bough
Leaning against the tree
Gazing upwards I watch the sky
Reveal its many secrets.

Those are the stars
That glitter and twinkle
And promise new worlds
With strange horizons.

I know my world;
Beyond its horizon
There are the bright stars
That wait for me.

I possess the will
And the power to wield
I am mobile and resolute
Ever ready to move and act.

But what if I happen to find
The horizons of the new worlds
No different from our own
Similar in content and effect!

What if I happen to find
The same uniformity
The same kind of spread
The same kind of invite!

This very thought
Of universal-sameness
Holds me back,
It tests my resolve.

Unable to venture forth
I continue to gaze at the stars
Watch them glitter
And then fade at each dawn.

    NIce poem! when Abraham watched the stars - he also asked a question: Do I rule them or do the rule over me?
    My answer is: through love and altruism - you become LIKE God and by this similarity - unite with Him and out of His love to His creature - He lets you to rule the world together with him.
    Just like Husband lets wife everything.
