Thirst Of Life

Thirst  Of Life short poem

Photo by Moyan_Brenn


Being in a wealthy family
Being with healthy siblings
Could not make my mind happy.
A thirst for some thing else
Burnt inside me as a fire.
My desire grew day by day
Nothing could prevent me
From my burning thirst inside
Day and night I worked on it
I knew, I have to break all the tie ups
Sentiments and bondages I left behind
And selected my own way of life
criticisms and comments pierced in me
But the beams of light entered in
Gave me courage to go forward
I swam through the high waves
which blew up above my head.
Ups and downs came on my way
But my two loving dots helped me
To reach my goal and make me happy.
Now I am on the shore with a smile on the face
I do not know the happiness in me happened
Or I brought inside
To reach my goal

Which of the two gives us more happiness…..
…the thought that we are in the right track…..or…..the satisfaction that we have reached our goal…
…………..what if we meet with a failure…..

…………the beauty of this poem is that it kickstarts a fresh controversy even after the goal is reached….
