Deserted Path

Deserted Path

By Meher Gandhi

I think of the journey and from where I started.

Though still, I stand in the sands that once held the crowd, my fear;

So, I let this sand hold on to my pain and each one of my tear.

Who knows what will be made of me when I turn back to see all that I defeated?

For now, I am left standing on these sands depleted.

I might shatter into a thousand pieces but they say every piece of gold shines;

And I can tell you for sure, in here there are no gold mines.

When I rise on this deserted path to see the horizon, all I see is the visage of that one fighter;

So, when I rise to see the horizon I let it show me the mirror.

I stand, and here I stand with blood oozing out of all the wounds created by the sudden breakdowns;

Cries of you and cries of me cannot be heard in these  boundary-less grounds.

So, I shout with all my left might for I may not be able to shout again;

Has all the endurance I once had gone in vain?

I wander and wander in search of an exit but more and more I roam, the more I feel this desert to be home.

I fall and stay in the hope of never rising again but the king of isolation gives me his hand again.

So, I rise once more on this deserted path to see the horizon, but all that comes in view is the visage of that one fighter;

Now, I rise and let it show me the mirror.

Hello to all the readers and writers out here! I am Meher Gandhi. I am a dreamer and a wanderer, dreaming of a world made of words and wandering in a land of my own scribblings. I am constantly scribbling my reveries and all the secrets I unearth while living, sometimes it’s on paper, most of the times, it’s mental notes. WordPress is a great platform to showcase the art of writing be it on the spot or else. I am loving this work of writing blogs, reading your blogs, commenting on them, receiving the likes, comments and valuable suggestions. It is all so fun! I am a teenager who loves to read and write. I am a positive person and so are my scribblings. If you want to connect with me then, head over to the contact page in the “my pages” section! Would you like to join me in for a walk in my land of scribblings? With love, Meher.
