FAR ACROSS THE OCEAN

FAR ACROSS THE OCEAN

2 mins 13.9K 2 mins 13.9K

Far across the ocean,

Among the submerged weeds,

There lays a shell,

In the bottom of the sea...


When the first ray of sunlight ,

Falls on it through the beautiful blue green waves,

It softly gleams....


Among the beautiful sea creatures,

It dwells,

Closing and opening,

Tightening its grasp...


One day a small sand particle came into its clasp,

It pushed harder,

But the grasp was much stronger....


Unable to get outside,

It asked the shell,

Shell asked it to choose,

Either go or stay inside,

With me, within me,

And I will turn you into something very beautiful...


In the lust to turn beautiful,

Scared but happy inside,

Particle thought about showing her beauty,

To her mates when she will be outside...


After the passage of another spring,

The shell opened and it showed the particle,

Its image in the vast ocean,

Particle shone and gleamed,

Now it is a pearl,

Beautiful, white and smooth....


It thanked the shell and asked its permission to leave,

The shell laughed and told her the truth...

How can you leave me little beauty...

Now you are a part of me,

I cant let you go even if I want to....


The pearl cried and begged,

Shell was merciful but it was unable to do anything kind,

Pearl stayed there cursing itself for being so blind...


After some seasons,

The shell died and then it dried,

But assuring the pearl that she will have a new life...


One day the shell got picked up by a fisherman,

It got opened and the pearl was out,

Out in the sunshine in the beautiful world of air...


Fisherman sold it,

And the pearl got inside the collection of gems of a beautiful lady,

She wears it on her neck tied in a beautiful golden string....


Pearl stayed there,

Happy and contented,

Lying there with a sense of pride...


Sometimes in greed of adding a little beauty to our life,

We loose the real happiness,

Mistakes happen but they are a part of our life,

Something beautiful can always come out of the mistaken things,

Life goes on showing us its enormous ways,

Bitter and better,

But always it remains there to be lived and let others live.......
