The Journey Into Twilight

Dia noite 1

Ah! How I remember those days now
Like a lore or a poem or a distant dream
Those younger days of mirth and joy
Upon which I had once tread

How fair and majestic shone the sun then
How its rays kissed the morning mist
How green and exuberant the grass danced
Like a toddler with his favourite toy

The morn turned to an early noon
Bringing youth and energy with its powerful gleam
My days were spent with books and gale
The best part of my life, I now feel

But the early noon not lasting long
Quickly turned aged and pale
The abrupt death of morning and youth
My two strong pillars suddenly fell

Thus alone I was left with my lone companion
To face the harsh and barren sun
Oh how swiftly had he changed
From glistening light to a burning train

I battled long and hard lonesome
To give my two parts their misty morning
And after the strain and all the pain
I wished for rest and tarry for my wounds

Oh how rightly were my wishes met
For there came the evening and shadows galore
Not dark and terrible as those of the noon
But cool and glorious with stars and an early moon

My body is now tired, I feel so spent
Like too little butter on too much bread
My heart feels stretched, my mind feels drained
The weary long journey is now coming to an end

And now as I ponder, being in the twilight of my day
My heart runs in and out of those memories
Some fair and white, some dark and sorrowful
I see, I have come to a far, distant land

Oh! How I started from a misty morning
And how has the darkness crept
The day has been long, longer than many
For this one day has seen numerous nights already

But still I live on, waiting with anxious heart
For not long ahead my night now lays
As I reach here upon the high night
All alone, not even my lone companion to stay

But don’t cry my friend, for it has been a lovely day
A perfect one, as many would say
It is not of the departure, that should sadden your heart
But of the loss and fall of a wonderful day

I now bid adieu to all my friends
So distant and yet so near they feel
My day is over and night has come
I do now into darkness, fade away

Let your heart be happy, oh dearest of all
And always remember an unforgettable journey
For the journey to twilight was not a waste
A journey of pride and of a mortal day!

Why Do We Travel?

Why do we travel? #Poetry #NewPost #Sciolism

Wanderlust feet, with a map in my hand and dreams in my eyes!

Do we travel to arrive?
If yes, where do we reach?

Or do we travel for the journey?
If yes, what does it teach?

Do we travel for the experience?
If yes, what fills the page?

Or do we travel to grow?
If yes, how much do we age?

Do we travel for joy?
If yes, how long does it last?

Do we travel for redemption?
If yes, do we move on from past?

I guess we travel to live
Through lives of others around
I guess we travel to meet ourselves
By traversing this universe’s ground.

I Want To……

Image Source: The Odyssey Online

I want to run
Faster, farther
Relentless
Focused on the goal
Attain the un-achievable

I want to fly
Stronger, higher
Unafraid
Challenging the sky
Ruffle the world’s feathers

I want to dream
Bigger, wider
Uninhibited
Boisterous to folly
Armed with passion

I want to create
Unmade, unthinkable
Unparalleled
Rival the impossible
Set a new world order

I want to be
Freakier, crazier
Unhinged
Heart on my sleeve
Living by the sword

The Toil of Life

np_20160102_nmhand-n6d_1121390

Forever has industry, been the soul’s bread
Mountains were moved, for heart’s desires spread
Journeying into unknown, we oft marched ahead
Nations arose, as hunger of enterprise was fed

Lofty minds conquer heights, when ambitions wed
Honest hand breaking soil, not a doubt’s shred
To err is existential, but if abeyant, you’re dead
Mistakes are incumbent, but that’s how the cocoon is shed

Take strife in your stride, prepare to be bled
To rhyme may be harmony, but dissonance is life’s thread
Scratch your knees, break your teeth, overcome that dread
Conquer that dusty road, it’s ever the one less tread

Corporate Life

Pretentious world
Pushing you up
Atop the sky

Meaningless pursuits
Fragile egos
Plastic highs
Muddied courtesy
Futile hostility
Solitary triumphs
Friendless teams
Worthless glory

Pretentious world
Pushing you down
Over the fatal edge

Of Night and Day

Night and day
A smile’s far away
Sorrow holds a sway
Mind’s numbed array
Eyes moist today
Sun burns the sleigh
Faces mock my way
Sneers jab & slay
Pain asks my bay
No, not okay
Tears, oft they spray
With life we pay
Think it’s a play
Hope change of lay
Despair and dismay
It’s all a fey
The options weigh
Build bridges, byway
To Him and pray
Sound last hooray
Mayday Mayday
It’s done, we’re grey
Lost, though a toupee
Jump off the quay
Somebody else’s prey
Another night and day
