holding a speed dating event I am yet to become a hero

http://adetacher.com/misroe/jisdr/771 I am yet to be read in history books.
I have started my journey long back.

I can, now, see nothing but ripples of water

The other side of the water may have a shore

I just want to conquer that world

I want to become the king of that land.
Forbidden thoughts and blood clots on a knife

I have Backpacked those all.

It’s time to sail across the path

Traveled by none.

Sometimes I feel like drowning

My chest gets straining

My voices get lost in the water

I feel helpless

And suddenly rise again

Sometimes I see the sun has set

My vision gets blurred

My navigation loses the direction

I feel blind

And suddenly see the pole star.
Sometimes I get tired

My energy gets exhausted

My hope glimmers in the dark

I feel weak

And suddenly I fight again.
I have heard of them who have stopped sailing midway.

They all get drowned

Or died of starvation.

Their names are lost from the municipality diary.

But I want to be a victorious

My name must be put in the pages of history books.

I will keep sailing until I reach the shore

Till the last drop of water

I can see all around.

All that I can do is hold the oar tight, row the boat

And rehearse the victory song.

Hitherto known as the “Tissue Paper Poet” and credited many a times with initiating the same genre of poetry I, contemplated of writing this blog where I could inter-alia, endeavor to write my random thoughts and publish that of others. The blog will contain subjects of myriad hues ranging from poetry & travelogues to sundry incidents.
