A Wasted Ride!

That hide and seek
of shade and light,
that misty dawn
with cool poise,
smoky eyes, cold hearts,
that tired glance
which blurred the scene,
that journey dark
in frozen fog
and that too
without the sustenance,
neither the mile-stones guided
nor the destinations reached,
I was faced with time-constraints
either to wait for someone
or to search myself, now
I stop mid-way
and look at my hands
i find there just a truth wide
all regrets for a wasted ride!

    I sometimes feel like this, like I've wasted a lot of my life and have had little to no emotional support, 'a dark journey without sustenance' I can't stop though, and I can't go back. Loved your poem, very expressive.

    The rough journey undertaken by the soul, to discover the self, to find its purpose...sometimes we see the light, the meaning, the the truth, the self...sometimes the vision is blurred.Confused in the dark we grope for our way..puzzled and in need of a guide, we stand still and wonder if the journey to seek the self was not worth at all, while the time slowly passes by...........Wonderful Shahzia Batool..a thoughtful and neatly woven poem.

    in every wasted ride
    we may gain the truth
    for the journey we go through /It is very soothe some time
    to cry about ur pain/ bravo

    Life can never be a wasted ride. It has to go on with no regrets felt. Curve of learning may ascend. Opportunities may play hide and seek. Ultimately one searches and achieves what one wants. The poem brings out some harsh realities of life yet the life is worth living.

  • Akshaya Pawasker (8/24/2013 12:06:00 AM)

    No ride is wasted as long as we learn something from it though regrets are always there.nice poem.

  • Valsa George (8/23/2013 11:12:00 PM)

    From being caught and held a prisoner in this blind alley, there is a need to get out somehow! When all hopes are blurred, strange enough, we see the glimmer if light at the other end! ! That's life.... one of light and shade, victory and defeat.... a journey of destinations reached and missed! ! Strikingly powerful! !

  • Sajad Meer (8/23/2013 10:37:00 PM)

    What Introspection! The poetess might know the best vista, but i can feel the struggle of the outer self with the inner self. Wonderful poem!

  • Aftab Alam Khursheed (8/23/2013 8:37:00 PM)

    A Wasted Ride! by Shahzia Batool is a beautiful poem in which poetess brought the reality about the soul and body....a soul is on ride in this body and we came on this earth with a specific purpose 'to bring peace and harmony and called best creation of Lord..but we are not as per the creation i find there just a truth wide
    all regrets for a wasted ride! ..this the marvel write of the poetess anguide to the human civilisation and did an act to awake the sleeping soul... thank you sister love to read and think to clear the kink
