A RIDDLE

Streetlights have brightened,
when I walk in the eve
Sky that had pregnant clouds has disappeared
I stare at stars.

While I walk in the solitude, 
I can see the crowd,
of the city,
Loud whispers, hard to hear anyone
Streetlights dim now,
I feel better.

I’ve seen, people going for long trips,
 to nowhere, with lost hopes.
They come back,
and live in their pathless space
But remember,
Road is still open…

It’s strange 
to learn about lonely life,
twist and turns of human experiences
Let there be solitude in the murky cities,
Streetlights have brightened again…
