FATE, AN ETERNAL FINALE

On the rippling surface of boundless ocean
Sailing on a little Canoe called life
On a very lonely ,solitary voyage 
In a diminshing period of light
between one darkness to another grievous sinister

To the scope of an eye could travel
I see nothing but mysterious space
Between running time and fading light
which I can not see till I shut my eyes

Sailing on juggling and dancing waves
Of an endless and aimless carpet of water
I started the journey on high hopes and dreams
With all the energies and power of dawn

I trusted the oars of motivation
And started paddling with reasons
Fighting a turbulent colossal ocean

I travelled as far as I could
but after wasting all my energies
I realised I had reached nowhere
Reaching the same point at every point
and embraced nothing
But an enormous body of water

After exercising all my powers of my prime
With no power and a dying time
Throwing oars into the vastness of the ocean
Left myself on the mercy of slappy waves
As light faded away and blackness emerged
Shutting the eyes from light is not an option or choice
It was the only way left till the darkness… covered me
With its enormous weight and insistent shadows…
