Trust - Poem by Kavya Leo Vakkayil

It was anchored in my heart
Like in the depths of oceans
It shined bright all the time
As the sparks of diamond
The rays of trust
I called them each time
Till it lost the shine,
Alas, they were gone!

I counted till ten
And then I searched my room
I thought its playing
Hide and seek
To make me find it
And never let go again
I searched beneath the bed
I searched on the roof
I searched the locked cupboards
I searched behind the curtains
I never found them
Nor their luster again

I wandered through the roads
I whispered its name
Conditioned people
They stared at me
And laughed loud again
In the way they were
Always trained.

I jumped without fear
And swam the depths
To search inside
Those flowing streams
I made paper boats and wrote my address
And let them flow fast through the rain
I wished: it finds me
And the way back home
If its waiting for a ship
Far across the horizons.

Still I wait
With my windows open
My doors unlocked
And keys thrown away
With the rays of hope
Within my soul
I wish;
I find the lost trust again.
