The Path!

Tenacious enough,her will
To find the existence of higher power
After long years of being a true atheist.
She now decided to roam amidst the path of the rich
There,she found,a few kind-hearted souls
Yet a few more into never ending greed for more
Only to find out,those riches
Never made the filthy rich happy.

Hoping to find the lost power in her
The miracle of her being saved from a fatal accident
Her search meandered into another path
The path filled with hunger and poverty
There,she found, a few frolicsome souls
Yet a few more concealing themselves into petinent paths
Only to find that ,their hunger
Never made them to pause and be truly happy.

But yet again with a new zeal,she took another path
A path where good and evil dominated,In it to find the theist in her
Often stumbling the paths of riches and pebbles
Bewildered to find both good and evil
In both the divided communities
Only to find it more confusing
confusing enough to believe
Not to find the higher power in the pathless path

Defeated,she closed her eyes
and opened them into the path of a new perspective
Looked into the very soul of herself
there she could find both rich and poor in her health
There she could find both good and evil in her thoughts
Residing in harmony
Covering each other up,
Where was god in all these?

This path was claerer than the rest
She walked all the paths ever taken,again.
Fantazised to find miracles everywhere
In the thoughts of good and wise people
In the homes of rich hearts
In the smiles and cries of new borns
Miracles she found,no man can ever do.

Miracles,a few that she could make out
A few more,demanding it’s distance
Somewhere deep down,bowing to the nature’s law
The cycle of life and death
Mysteries and miseries were always a part of the unsolvable puzzle
She now knew that her God never existed within the dim walls
But in the hearts and thoughts of everything in the cosmos world
Who now claimed the peace in her.
