The Eternal Journey Of The Soul - Poem by Vinita Sahu

The soul left yet another body,
To journey  across,
To an unknown abode,
Faster than light,
Against all might,
It raced through,
The space quite tight,
To create yet another life.

What it took,
What it shook,
Akin to a flowing brook,
Meandered along the way,
To give in someday,
To the universal sway.

But the womb it enters,
The womb that shelters,
The folk now it owns,
Rejoices gaily as drones,
While the earlier ones,
Still heavily moans.

The journey  begins,
On the extended slate,
Though a new pallette,
Vibrant pastels,
Seem to await,
To paint a lifescape,
Distinct from previous scrape,
Yet the shadows of thoughts,
Actions and their plot,
Poses the sordid clot,
Enough to pull down castles,
And sometimes even,
Fetching incredible  marvels.

Life is thus a journey,
To heavens or caverns,
Behold yeah!
Hold the reins tight,
Lest you slip and fall,
Off the life's saddle.

    Life's eternal journey continues, our reactions to various actions around us too continues, the excitement lies in the fact how well one combats deteriorating forces to rise up to spiritual level in the truest sense! (Report) Reply
