My desire


Life is survived
till there is desire

I too have a desire
desire to travel across the world
to view the colors of life
to travel across the space
talk with moon and stars
to ask the nature
what made it so divine
to let the people of this world
you are a part of nature and
divinity exists in you too
to tell them
we all are travellers
to tell them
this world is an inn
we have to leave peacefully
we have to enjoy the journey
without hurting each other
as we travel in bus, train or in plane
we can not say before or after this life, and no one is confirmed about
but we must ensure
a peaceful and delightful journey
The Almighty is sending our all needs at every moment of our journey
with regards to all passengers of this journey.

    the analogy of the world being a temporary resting place and human beings as travellers is aptly presented! ! ! (Report) Reply
