To walk the path lighted by them , they command ,
Fate deceives fantasy , the proclaimed rule they herald .
But wait , look inside me for once i plead strong and hard ,
Elusive were they , in all ways blinded and bland .
The fire inside me was burning brighter and stronger
To follow which seemed the sole meaningful thing ever .
I listened , amused to realise my heart knows me better ,
Liberated from the chains i ran , no doubts , no more worthless fear !
Cowards laughed , i dont remember their names , never bothered .
Prodding the cold damp path , i shiver , at times devastated
The flames of my dreams kept me warm , each time focussed
Quenching my thirst and hunger , but still, more every time i demanded !
Today , i smile at the blossoms dancing in my garden , what a lovely May !
To the envious eyes of the neighbours who chose to stride the convenient way
Your heart speaks a language , the many secrets to keep you gay
Listen , regret would you never , but sure would shine the brightest in its ray !
