Destination

Jahnavi Borthakur



I asked myself...

Where is my destination?

I don’t know where the path leads.

Heaving through life’s nebulous lanes

Churned in the whirlpool of countless pains

Lost in an enigmatic world of fears and sufferings,

I transcend the illusionary walls of fantasies

to gather the fragments of humanity again.

I asked myself...

Where is my destination?

I walked on not knowing where the path leads

All alone I drift in the anonymity of time,

Through the alleys of greed and vice, I see

Human’s abhorrence to the human kind.

Wrapped up in the toxic wave of repugnance and

Spitting out venom in hatred, vanity and pride

I asked myself...

Where is my destination?

But I walked on not knowing where the path leads

Spinning ourselves in the web of a mercurial life,

Do we strive to make the world a Paradise?

I felt like a hermit living in seclusion,

confined with the isolation of the soul, body and mind

In the shadows of uncertainty with reality far behind

I asked myself...

Did I find my destination?

Sailing in the turbulent ocean of eternity,

I now see that my destination lies

beyond my existence in this reality.

In life’s journey I need to fight and survive.

Why am I then so ambivalent about staying alive?

with my warped desired to surrender my life.

Life preaches to us, every time we fall we must rise.

My truth is, I seek to believe and I need to thrive.
