G. Siva Shankar


Realisation - Poem by G. Siva Shankar

When I started my journey in the path of life,
Things appeared to be beautiful and mysterious,
Everything and everyone excited me and made me anxious,
That someday I would come to understand,
How they work and why they fascinated me.

As I continued down this path,
All these things which fascinated, made me anxious,
No longer did.
And these things and people were different as time went on.

Through my journey in life,
Things often appeared to be different.
And I could never understand why it was like this.
As I reached my destination,
I sat down.
Saw my life pass before my eyes,
I came to realize that

Things never change,
It’s just that,
I have changed through the years.
And so has my way of seeing things.
