A winding path lies before,
A river’s bends it wore.
The journey started slows for none,
the sands of time fall one by one.
Each step creates a ripple,
Changing the course of fate a little.
The inner voice served as guide,
But a vision did it rarely provide.
What laid ahead remained unknown,
Amidst the dusk loomed the dawn.
The fire within raged ablaze,
Keen to clear the daze.
In the chase to see the end,
The present has condemned.
The moment that is passing by,
is saying its last goodbye.
Standing firmer on the ground,
Unveiled an image so profound.
The sight that bore before,
Revealed a glowing shore.
Lost in the charm ahead,
Tears conveyed the unsaid.
For once the haste ceased to be,
The heart broke free.
Basked in the warmth of the Sun,
The weight of the world becomes undone.
The chorus of the birds beam,
At the emerging of the sea bream.
The swooshing rhythm of waves abound,
the voice within calmly drowned.
Standing before this foaming sea,
and I, anew.
