Unknown

Looking beyond what,
really it is,
I breathe, into a world,
of unknown...

The road is,
not that dark..
there are signs,
to follow, to know and to be.

I take my first step,
like that of a baby,
walking for the first time.

Unsteady at first,
the second one is a little,
more sure...
And now, I walk.

Not like I own the world,
but like, I am still,
on the learning curve.

I look on,
with a hope that,
seemed lost,
a love that was slowly,
burning me to death.

I hold my hand out,
close my eyes,
and take another step forward,
and before I can fall.

Magically, I am lifted,
steadied, with hands that,
re-assure me,
all is not lost. Yet.

Nothing is ever lost. Just like energy, it is only the form that changes.

And I am truly glad that you have started taking your baby steps ahead, all over again. Now, all you need is someone to keep walking beside you, not to show you the path, but to be quick to hold you when you stumble.

Falling and getting up, and falling again, is a part of life. Just learn out of it, and move on!

Wish you all the best!

Sakshi,

Read 2 posts now. I will not say anything on the previous post as per your wishes except that once you realise your mistake, rise and ensure damage is erased. Good poem and it shows your quest to succeed, which you will with little support from someone.

Take care

Lovely post. Made me cry lol. Not because it is a sad one, just is very relateable.

And I don't think anything is ever lost as long as you keep moving forward. Stumbling is inevitable, but while we keep picking ourselves up we still have all the possibilities ahead of us.

@Shayon
Nothing is ever lost except hope. And when that is lost, it takes eons to find one. Keep that in Mind. I am looking for 'my hope' in the unknown land.
