The Journey Towards Truth - Poem by Nishant Rawlley

Alone did i start,
Unarmed, Unaware,
Uncleared doubts, Unanswered questions, Unsolved mysteries blotting my mind.
I knew not what life hath for me,
Framed in the web of my own desires,
And refusing to come out.
Suffering, yet clinging to the pain,
Not realising that pain was only a mirage.
My world was dark,
And the trail, certainly not easy,
I continued fighting the illusive pain,
Resisting it, neglecting it, still suffering it.
Then i stumbled,
And i sat down,
' Its my life after all ' struck me,
Why should i then,
Let it fall prey to them?
So self insufficient? Am i? I wondered.
' I do not really need them' came the answer,
Ahh! there i was,
Facing the ultimate truth,
The dawn had broken,
The secret revealed,
Trust no one except Him,
Depend on no one except Him,
Renounce the world and the world is yours
I had escaped the web,
I was free,
A whole new meaning, life attained,
Sympathies, not my cup of coffee,
I have not, regrets,
Silence is the melody of my life,
And solace my sole companion...
