Treasure Island

Bashyam Narayanan


Not far not near


Not far not near
No destination is far
No destination is near
It is you who perceive them so
Your perception
Makes destination drawn near
Or makes it drawn far
A determined travel makes you
Reach destination any far
It might have been perceived it to be
A reluctant move makes you
Miss the destination any near
It might have been perceived it to be
Problem lies in
In our knowing not where we are
And where we are heading for
Define these
You will be at the destination any far
Doubtful you are
You cannot be at the destination any near
No destination is nor far neither near
You only make them so
Mental blocks are mightier than road blocks
Emotional set backs stronger than obtacles
Attitudinal lapses weaken you
Vision mission mismatch pulls you down
Struggle avoiding makes you miss the path
It is all in you
No destination by itself is
Not far not near

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
