Dilantha Gunawardana


In Minotaur's Sight


Marooned in a labyrinth of fatum
Like a fly trapped in a cobweb
Life unveils hurdles
As tall as the Himalayan mountains
As deep as African groundwater wells
For the soul to quest earnestly
Like an elephant searching for a water hole
For a marooned soul is never an island
For the human being is guided
By the enlightenment of his conscience
To lend a helping hand to the perilous soul
To emancipate man from his Daedalean predicament
To find his own true compass
Away from the bellow of the Minotaur
