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

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
