— Kashish Kaur
(This poem is about the cycle of life, death and rebirth and how our soul seeks enlightenment to be set free from this cycle but fails despite trying in numerous lives)
Lost lessons, words not yet spoken out
Another chance to clear all the doubt.
Tasks never considered to be done
Another dawn to start what was never begun.
Decisions made to reach the opposite end
Until the face just can’t continue to pretend.
The meanings lost until the chaos surrounds
Then gathering pieces from all over the grounds.
This is the story of the traveler who walks the life in many lifetimes.
This is the wisdom of the hermit who lives behind the face of a man.
The journey started once with hope to transcend
Suddenly realizing there is no thing as an end.
Everything we do has a deeper meaning
Since every end is just a new beginning.
The longing eyes look for the final destination
But what it gets is another incarnation.
Until it sees the end is enlightenment
There is no worth of contemplation or judgement.
This is the story of the sailor who tries to reach his home
But instead arrives on a new beginning, a new dead end.
This is the story of an old soul
Trapped in the cycle of life, death and life.
Until the eyes of the soul realizes this truth
The life is just an illusion of the mind.
The wisdom gained from long lost lives
Wails the requiem of the longing this time.
The lessons learned from long ago age
Comes in the face of the song of the light.
Until the enlightenment.
