Treasure Island

Anita Sehgal

(Delhi)

Boat of destiny


The boat of destiny

takes you across a thousand shores.

Though born through me,

I cannot cling..

for life beckons you..

Its own purpose to fulfill!

Each soul a part of the grand design!

    Our children, they come through us
    And yet God says that they are not ours
    Nomads of perhaps several life times
    Our lives for them mere stop overs........

    The hard fact of life in your few lines well brought out.. keep your pen busy (Report) Reply
