Winds

When stormy winds come to greet me

In the midst of my long & curvy path

Let me not forget that you are there to see

That I learn my lessons without any wrath

 

When dusty winds cross my day’s toil

In this journey of small steps to cover miles

Let me remember that there is no glory in foil

That which you taught with gentle smiles

 

When coarse winds cut across the reap

In this fertile land where I’ve sown my grains

Let me remind myself that it is no good to weep

That the heap shall accumulate later when it rains

 

When dry winds cut across my skin’s surface

In this new land of options & opportunities

Let me repeat that there are many faces in this race

That teaches the law of change & need for peace

 

When there is no more wind that I can feel some day

In this land which I thought was mine with pride

Let me revisit my efforts & memories in a way

That rejuvenates & adds essence to my soul’s stride…
