On A Trodden Path - Poem by Ravi Upadhye

Travelling on a oft trodden road
Memories swarm my mind in shapes vivid and bold

Years back depressed and sad
And many times engrossed in thoughts wild and mad
At times elated, enthralled at a well deserved reward

At times lost in my own nostalgia
Travelling the miles to pay homage to a soul struggling for a few gasps
To end a life scarred with wounds and pain in fits and laps

This has been my well trodden path

Who knows, the destiny of the road and my life
Past and present, not so distant
Clinging ferociously to bits of rainbow and an outburst of thunder and flash
Otherwise punctuated by monotonous murmur of mundane and profane tasks

On this road, I keep travelling with my lone companion
Whose kind touch and empathy makes the entire stretch of an otherwise
parched sojourn
Bearable, pleasant and worth living, serene and a peaceful haven
