Hope! The Ultimate Life Force

Hope! The Ultimate Life Force

1 min 321 1 min 321

I went to temples, mosques, churches

To find the purpose of my presence,

Took multiple dips in Ganges, reached

To peaks of Himalayas to find His existence.

No where were the clues that could satisfy

My mind to stay strong on a path,,

Or to lay a foundation deep and strong

And sustain life while facing the wrath.

Self catharsis in solitude, in those four walls

Got an insight that Hope is the only tool that propels,

And faith plays a role of foundation that

Drives us peacefully towards our goals.

When an action goes wrong and we feel drowning

Unseen hands keep us afloat,

And when life seems unpredictable and hard

An unseen rudder pushes the life’s boat.

In the journey of life, struggle, misfortune,

Anger, vengeance, are the hurdles,

Hope is the ultimate life force to push us

To try again, even if, to burn mid night candles.

Hope opens the maps, roads, clear doubts

Add feathers to our deeds, bring forth logic,

Make us to sing melodious tunes , even

Inside the weak walls of mortar and bricks.

Hope is to bring out the inner strength

And understand the real essence of life,

To live each day with determination and optimism

Not important to think , what is there, afterlife.

Hope is to know the universe and

And praise the mutilated world,

It is to feel His existence all around,and Him being there

Dealing with our affairs, whenever we are whirled………
