My Journey


Who am I?
I am the first cry
Of a new-born baby
Naked and utterly helpless
Wailing-‘Love me, for I am
Yours, Mother. I come from the
Deep recesses of a sacred womb.'

I am an intoxicating attribute of God
Whose oneness I utter in every prayer
I am the tread of every young and old
That hither to the call of prayer.

I am the quiver aroused by the touch of the beloved
The bruise on my beloved’s lips
A kiss whose lingering taste
Wakes me up to its moment
I am the glisten of the beads of libido.

I am the charm that hangs around your neck
Enslaved and engraved-‘You are the chosen one’.
I am a fragrant memory that keeps me in a delirium
A drop of radiance that enthralls every eye that sees it.

I am a myriad specks of dust- enshrouded, lying
Utterly helpless, lowered into the womb of
Mother Earth-helpless I come and helpless I leave
‘Love I am and to love I return.’

    There are two types of journey. one single n another mass journey. we are bound to complete both at a time. the journey of a poet consists both. in both journeys we have to exchange love. a very soulful expression. it is my humble prayer you be able to comlete both successfully. keep writing then you will feel you r alone but entire creation is following you. A grt job. (Report) Reply

    every line of this poem is like painting on the same huge picture
    clear, neat, and coloreful/ it draws the single's diminsion of life,
    where he can realize his boarders & live it will.
    who am I?
    Love I am and to Love i return.
    a great write, God Bless You & bless you lovely soul, Love.
