The Quest, Yet To Be Accomplished... - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

The mist,
Barely made my path visible,
Even if it did,
It couldn’t elucidate anything,
Peradventure,
Life was never fair,
Through the mist,
I made my way,
Step by step,
But leading no where,
My journey seemed endless,
border less, unexplainable,
Not knowing my destination,
I kept on walking,
Overwhelmed with questions,
I went on….
To where, not in my knowledge...
But my determination would not allow me to stop
And look back….
For in every challenge, there lies an opportunity...

    nicely drawn
    My journey seemed endless,
    border less, unexplainable,
    Not knowing my destination,
    I kept on walking,
    Overwhelmed
