Life continues to surprise me
despite acceptance of the inevitable.
I wonder how Hope walks
Carrying the lamp for Life behind it,
treading on corpses of Trust.
The miracle of respiration
in the ever-changing direction of winds.
I look back on my solitary footprints
And gaze wide-eyed at the conquered mountain peaks.
Who carried me through it all?
Calling out enemies, backstabbers and traitors,
I continue to seek companionship.
I am in awe of the sailing ship.
Navigating its way through the sea of Power and Greed
but staying afloat till it meets an anchor.
The undercurrents of Faith surprise me
in the overarching theme of Existence.
Here, I have dealt with a number of emotions, and theie inter-relatedness. This is a poem published in Com Pen Di Um
