One within me...

Manish Rout 


I have seen all, 
the qualm of a lonely time, 
the scuffle of the lavish life, 
the fuss of a glorifying strife.

I have so seen the vice, 
the selfish ego, greed, 
and the desire on the world, 
love, lust, money, fame, 
or the ambitions of mine.

I say to dream,
but to fulfill the crave within,
and as I tread on the path,
forgetting everything I love ,
I went ahead ripping on my dearer past…..

The elusive it was, 
but I was relentless and hungry, 
got what I craved for 
The money, and the fame, 
the tryst with many interests,

and the life game….
But why am I still sad. . 
Was that all I ever wanted…!
Why did not it bring my inner satiety, 
what my soul needed?
I couldn't explicate at all!!

Days became grim, nights made tussled, 
as I reminisced my past, 
I garnered the remaining strength, 
ready to put my strides 

On my cherished rides…. 
so begun my see in my new eye…..
The sunset on distant looked new,

embracing and hugging
a gust of wind touched with gee. 
The withered leaves falling from tree, 
or the chirruping of winged being... 
gently touched me …. 

I traveled through mountains,
walked through the golden beach,
meditated upon and prayed,
also searched peace in music and dance 
Alas I couldn't find the one.
 Tired and dejected, finally I returned,
sitting on my chair on the veranda,
analyzed the inside and outside my thought 
 and then it came...a realization in me.

Yes!! was all I wanted for,
the serenity of my mind,
it brought me solace as I saw,
the peace was there within me..
so had I all seen,
the things that are intriguing,
the propensity of the life,
looking for place with solace and tranquil,
but at last I found that... One within me!!!
