A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek).

 

Sometimes I wonder

If life were so simple

Where was I all along?

 

Life is like a beautiful girl

You look at her from far

You love her, appreciate her tremendously

But are fearful to approach

 

She may slap you, shun you ….

And you are scared to plunge

 

Actually just a little bit of truth

A little bit of courage

A little bit of honesty

And she also wants to be held

 

Otherwise why such beauty

It’s there to be admired

 

Yes, life is like this

Waiting for you to plunge into it

Waiting for you to merge into it

Yes, waiting for you to be one with it.
