And that's how life goes on...

It was a December's night 

cool breezes went through 

but why was I untouched?

I felt being shielded by warmth 

Being an armour for me

It was as if I started a journey within

Being a trespasser in a mysterious land

It wasn't midnight as it already passed away 

It wasn't morning as I couldn't see a ray

A journey unknown unwanted it was!

I walked in more deeper

more warmer it was

I realised I wasn't alone

As I could feel yet another hands pating me

TIME it was! being my co-mate walking along with me

but aheading further I could feel warmth turning into fire, 

What once shielded me was now burning me!

I was all into that fire, I shouted for resistance.

TIME didn't respond, I shouted louder, it still kept on moving,

I cried! I yelled! I pleaded!

Then a sudden realisation came flying

TIME can speak but is deaf and blind

I kept on burning, I felt being scorched

But I found no water, no ice 

All I found was more fire inside

I accepted my defeat but journey was still incomplete

Then passing my  saturation it ended

Was that the end of fire inside me or the end of this journey?

But fire was still all around and this journey took me no where.

Then how I found myself burning no more?

Reason being I was already burnt

The cool breezes outside still couldn't touch me

Now even the lit fire inside couldn't burn me 

I saw TIME turning and returning 

Asked me,"Why I stopped in between?"

Reminded me that destiny has destined, the destination for me 

TIME holded my arm and started walking along

Said, "its life, and this is how it goes on... "
