Right, Left, About.....Turn!
Could you please tell
Where is it?
Oh! Very nearby
Then first right
Go round about half
Then turn left....
Where is it?
Person on seeing me
Walked so fast
As if I am going to eat him at once.
Please tell where is it?
Oh! You have come long way
Just do one thing
Then first left
Then turn left..
I was thinking
I had seen this place
This from where I started
I should have asked
From where I started
Rather than where to go.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
If we ask a way regarding to reach some place, though we give them the landmarks, each one will tell some what different way and we reach at the end from where we started.. May be sometimes in life too this can happen...
