WISH I KNEW FOR SURE





Wish I knew why
I was born in this world,
Wish I knew for sure,
The mysteries of the world
and beyond...

Everything runs on a smooth scale,
Yet when nature strikes,
I wish I could
unravel the force, behind...

When I see a baby born
or someone die,
Wish I knew for sure,
Answers to questions that
erupts in my mind...

Why are things the way they are,
What's the purpose of it all,
We think we are in control,
But a simple death
can shatter us all...

The colourful nature
all around,
The mesmerizing flora fauna
that surround,
Pacing at their own rhythm
and in sync,
Makes me wonder,
makes me think...

Wish I knew for sure,
and had answers to these all,
What's the purpose of it all...

  2. When you think about it, there really are a lot of things in life we do not know for sure. I guess each of us has to find our own purpose as we travel the path of life.

  3. Wishes are wild horses, tempting but elusive. And we poets love to ride them. Liked the philosophy behind your poem :)

  4. They say everyone and everything has a purpose. Once it is achieved they go... However we do not know what that purpose is :) life is truly complicated and unpredictable isn't it...

  13. Nandini, a profound inquiry into the heart of life. I guess there's no answer to all those questions, but somehow one feels compelled to ask them.
