Seeking Self - Poem by Seema Aarella

Towards an endless immortal search
A mortal soul begins its quest
Across deep sea and burning desert sand
Across the wilderness and civilized land
Until tired and beaten I rest
My soul driven by madness and zest

Towards a certain unseen death
A life wriggles, begins its breath
Every step new not perfect
But with zeal I climbed step by step
Staggering, falling, hurt but living
Glorifying life before the onset of dying

In unknown world of uncanny hollow
A dream begins to fill images of love
Unaware of loathe, cheating or failure
I blindly follow the footsteps of lure
There I build my castle of dreams
Amidst vast garden and clear streams

In the huge expanse of gloomy sky
My heart a wingless bird craves to fly
To reach the stars I stretch and strive
I sprout into colors when rains arrive
Singing my songs and dancing away
Enjoying myself, I am living today.

    following the footsteps of your lure is actually better than following somebody else
    ...a very meaningful write

    like a opera I like it,

    In the huge expanse of gloomy sky
    My heart a wingless bird craves to fly
    To reach the stars I stretch and strive
    I sprout into colors when rains arrive
