The guide....



There is a strong urge to reach beyond...

Stronger than an iron grip...

A fire that refuses to be doused...

A yearning that wills to be quenched but not yet... not until it is time...

A dream that refuses to lose its on going fight with reality....

Determination that looks up at the biggest obstacle and says "piece of cake!"

Courage that wakes up from somewhere within, trying to suppress the ever-present fear...

Memories that strengthen it all together...




Hands reach up to touch the stars...

Eyes follow and guide...

Suddenly there is a blinding light...




Eyes stagger...

Hands are thrown off course...

The fire is being flushed...

The dream fights a losing battle.. reality threatens to take over...

Determination lets out a tear and shakes its head... there is no voice anymore..

Fear shadows courage...

Eyes close... everything is dark...




And then... slowly... there is a shadow above the eyes and they relax...

Eyes open, shaded by love... they are shone more brightly than before..

Hands are guided by an unknown force.. they are right on target.. they reach up and touch the blinding star... light and power unite...

The fire fights back, ever raging...

Dreams become reality...

From behind, a voice speaks with a smile, "Piece of cake!"

B Blurts said...

DREAM is probably the biggest asset I've had. Often it equals one's liability. Too robust, I know..

BTW its much like Vaaranam AAyiram

Elithraniel Arawion said...

@ abhishek

hahaa.. :P are u just saying that to please me :P

Elithraniel Arawion said...

@ B

i agree... they do turn into a liability sometimes.. but you gotta go beyond them and dream again... that's the only way u'll get anywhere.. i shudn't be telling u this, seeing that ur into LSE and i'm the undecided soul

Kitty said...

hehe I m not a literary person so couldn make out the difference. It sounded good and had the structure of a poem and in one of ur previous post u ve telling that u r gonna post ur old poems.
