Through the looking glass
Filled the mind till the far horizons.
The mundane world whispered to me
That life, lying embedded in dark silhouette.
Painful thoughts of leaving home
Fear of the far-off place, so unknown
Some eerie enigma
Hovered over the kingdom of my mind.
Pensive mood thrust with piercing melancholy
Light wings of hope, of ambition
Helped me fly to the extreme pinnacle
And shimmering lights brought excitement.
Sober reflections of the bygone days
Deep quite contemplations of life’s alleyways
I left behind sweet home, all joy and mirth
For the soaring heights and that glory.
Yards and yards did I leave behind
With a strong will but stressful mind….
Destination’s still yards afar…
But I would return soon, sure
With success, achievement and fulfilled desires
Through the same door
That I left ajar.
