It felt magical, it felt out of the world; The journey to the land of innocence!
The joy in one’s eyes, the fear in another’s; The struggle of one soul, the pureness of other.
One look towards him & he gave a warm smile,
We turned around to leave and he said goodbye!
The charisma in the atmosphere wasn’t the one to be longed for;
But surely would be the one to always be remembered.
They shouldn’t be languished with pity; Instead must be adorned with love and happiness.
For those worthy of sympathy are only the ones, who have it all yet fail.
Together they dance and shout and play;
Enjoying the last days to the full extent.
Whereas, we, in spite of all the good around us,
search for that tiny pint of darkness to overshadow our hearts.
I might have visited them only for a brief while;
Yet, the smiles have been etched with a graver spade!
Journey To Another Land.
Note: This is a poem that I have written as a dedication to the people staying at Orphanages. My recent visit to an Orphanage inspired and influenced me to bring out all my feelings in the form of a poem.
P.S.: This is my third poem. Am I improving in my poetry skills? Let me know, readers! 🙂
