Freespirit Juneja

(09 Aug 1983 / New Delhi)

I Kept On Walking


Fixing my eyes at the bewildered world
Striving to be a free bird
Keeping aside all the herds
Becoming a man who does the talking
I kept on walking

My aims were like a beautiful sky
Its zenith required more than a try
Ordeal ahead was free from lies
Had to finish before this soul dies
My honest deeds were doing the talking
Without a hush, i kept on walking

Leaping all the tumbling stones
Beaming despite breaking my bones
Need to cover the journey alone
Seeds of success were sown
Deafening the simpleton's mocking
I kept on walking

Suddenly, my journey got tied
As if my life had jived
Beside me danced my bride
Surprisingly, found noone by my side
New foundation need to be laid
All my aims got flayed
Problems after problems kept on flocking
But I kept on walking

My life became totally shallow
Dragging into deathly hallows
Then the god brightened the day
When my baby had the say
Negating being its ultimate prey
I started the journey afresh
Keeping all my aims suppressed
I kept on walking
Till the heavens came knocking

    the truths set the tone of the poem which have been furnished with ease and the grief behind the dream and aim have worked out so perfect........right from your heart! ! (Report) Reply

    the refrain of the poem is awesome, it rhymes, it conveys a message, it adorns the poem.
    and the message you've conveyed, i think is inspiring too.
    the poem gives a hint of self confidence while making a line with over confidence.
    you kept on walking,
    i say, you must keep on writing. (Report) Reply

    The poem is essentially very good - there are two words I would change, however, these being `gawking` and `nerds.` Perhaps instead of `gawking` you could replace this with `fixing`, and `nerds` maybe could be replaed with `herds` if you want to maintain the rhyme. (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
