“A Little Wanderer”


This is my favourite….


I wandered lonely as a cloud
which was never seen in the sky,
I was unknown lost in the crowd
which had only desired to fly,

My residence was nowhere
and none was my identity,
As when I became still
Like a spoiled lonely tree,

I was a withered plant
on which never reached light
even which was never watered
ignorant of wrong and right,

I was a hollow seed
which was never sown
which was only hurled away
from its own green town,

I was the brimming river
blocked by many obstacles
on its long and long path
but every problem,it tackled.

    def like the river image as i find hope and power still in that, willing to roll on through the obstacles…around and through…really nice descriptions throughout that set the tone in this…

      Thanx sir….I filled the last line with hope because I wanted to describe that while difficulties came, while no one helped me, while I got no one’s attention etc. but even then I was on my path while tackling problems and difficulties.
      I appreciate your comment and thanx for visiting.:-)
