An array of lived dreams of life
Frozen into bricks and mortar of time,
Some achieved together
And some realised alone.
Each moment and each year of life
Is zinging down the wheel of Time,
Signaling the impending halt.
Listening still to the unheard melodies
Of unsaid tales of hopeful times
Makes me oblivious of the chime.
With new aspirations budding each day
And enticing me to soar high,
Cooing in my ears the song of a new dawn.
Entering the blissful realm of numbing silence
Becomes a distant but constant struggle.
The more I try to sever strings of illusion
To come out of the entanglement of life,
The more I get mired into
These swamps of attachment.
With the fulfilling past pulling me in one direction
And the glistering future in another,
I stand divided between the two times:
One of glitz and another of bliss.
Enmeshed in endless enchantments
And endless struggles,
I seek divine grace within.
