Amidst everything, I get old.



Random steps
Nowhere they lead to
A journey alone
And destination unknown.

The birds there
Must have told you
With them for so long
But to them you don’t belong…

Walking for years now
On same path
I’ve made a mark
Of my presence
…persistence.

No, I’m not complaining
I was made for you
(To be ruined by you).

You have not forgotten me
Just can’t
I believe in it
I believe in the silence around.

--x-x---

The tiny little droplets
Slowly drip away
But remember one thing;
Amidst everything
I get old.

Truly (and beautifully) said ! Yes,as the clock ticks, we get older. Makes us wonder, gape in awe at the "what-if"s, "could have"s, "should have"s, "will be"s etc etc !
