The road of life
Reetu | 26 Aug 2009

Life these days resemble a roller coaster ride which gives you speed, ecstasy, pleasure but not without a nauseating feeling. Survival of the fittest is in vogue and each one of is trying to outwit the other. Not that we are not achieving what we intend to, but then the journey is becoming more and more demanding and tedious.  

 As I went through another learning phase of life of late, I wished if things could be the way as …
 
The road of life, I wish
Were a bit more smooth and green
Its turns, less sharp and blind
The bends, less curvaceous and mean.
 
The road of life, I wish
Were with directions so vivid and clear
Its streetlamps alongside, glowing and bright
Lightening up everything, far and near.
 
The road of life, I wish
Were with speed breakers not so steep
With fewer jams and clumsy stoppages
And less of out-of-turn overtakes and leaps.
 
The road of life, I wish
Were with fellow travelers genuine and true
With less of road rages and confrontation
Will be a simple journey to the destination
With delightful contentment I will bid adieu.
 
I know it is too much to ask for, but then as they say… it’s our faith that keeps the world going… so keeping my fingers crossed….... may be sometime, somewhere ……
