Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!


via Cling

Lost in the wilderness, darkness descends

the winds howl and eerie sounds emanate all across,

Fear grips my soul and my body shudders,

sweating profusely, in spite of the cold

I try to call out for help, but my voice abandons me.

WithΒ all efforts failing and no choice left,

I cling on to my belief and pray fervently,

to send help my way.

The bell rings and I open my eyes

and I am flooded with relief,

to realise it was after all

a terrible nightmare!

    Clinging on to faith can keep us afloat through the toughest of times, even in nightmares!
    Wonderfully written Radhika.
