Transformation - Poem by Bireswar Halder

I am out in a journey, on a long march
Aimless and wandering, I walked out
Mid-way, time took a toll and the goal lost its way
None stood as a beacon, the way looked endless.

I forgot what the journey was worth
I was lost in a bog of illusions, as if I was blind
The Holy Spirit mocked me, worldly pleasures circled me
I was in a hunt for the ephemeral treasures.

I walked on, peace was never mine,
Slowly I was in a prison-house of pleasures
Wisdom dawned at last, a flash of epiphany
I was transformed, now the goal was eternal peace

For long I was in an accursed maze
I was bewildered, in mercy of hate and pleasures
The supreme goal of peace now is dimly visible
I am in the end of journey, light of peace in my hand.

    Verily, man gets lost in the journey of life and forgets the true purpose
    of like but indeed at the terminal, the goal get reviewed.....10
