HOPEFUL DESTINY

How long can the pages of the diary 
Remain blank, rustling because of 
Strong winds of nothingness?

Till when can the water of the river
Remain stagnant, though flowing
Is its natural form?

What’s it that hurts, what are 
Those pangs of the losses
That keep summoning 
Your frozen heart,
While the heart desires 
That the red and blue blood should keep drifting?

The eyes definitely can’t stare 
Into the blankness of the future,
When life buzzes around it…

Yes, life seemed to have come 
To a grinding halt, post the unexpected,
But the spring of happiness 
That keeps dancing in the souls
Has to take over someday,
And let happiness decide the destiny!
