Moving ahead towards my destination
I was no longer the same,
For the old one, it was the end
To allocate the new fame.
Finally thought to quench the thirst
Old things just became few,
Didn’t know but it was beautiful where I landed
Looking around, everything was new.
The struggles seemed to wane
Lips widened to enhance the smile,
I was protected under a shade
Thinking about walking a mile.
Shade grew and became pleasing
Felt being protected from the bad,
All continued to be joyful
Far from the thought of being sad.
One-sided shade went gigantic
Covering me from all side,
I became smaller, smaller, smaller
The darkness became wide.
Save me! Save me! I got trapped
Nothing was visible,
I ran but landed on the same
To get over it, I was not eligible.
Throbbing, sobbing, crying all way
No one was there to hear,
Years after, heard a sound today
Thank god! Someone was near.
A dreadful sound of laughter stroked
Trying to see who it was,
Covered with lust, anger, and hunger
Just my reflection it had.

Now realized that I was astray
Due to my own work,
I was shameful the most
Claiming myself a jerk.
It was completely my mistake
Letting the shade grow,
The dark was not good to go
Making my walk slow.
The sadness I felt before
Was the fear for the struggle?
Darkness made me last
As I became just a muggle.
I was now far from my home
Diverted from the path,
Blinded by the pollution of bad
Completely forgot the math.
Cannot end this just like that
The body is just a dress,
I left the previous one for good
But now I have nothing to express.
Waiting for the dark to fade away
Searching for the loophole,
Didn’t know who I was
I was the energy, I was the soul.
