Uncharted Path!

For many, life is a race against time, to reach the top,

they tread on, with an unflinching focus.

While the peak beckons me,

its allure, is not strong enough to lure me.

I would rather choose routes undiscovered,

meander on the cobbled pathways,

be lost in the maze of the unknown.

My dirt laden feet, walking on the muddy trails would gather untold experiences,

soaking in the spirit of nature, witnessing miracles unfold.

My chosen path in life may not give me success,

I may falter at the crossroads of life, be lost,

but it will armor me with enriched gratification.

  1. What a beautiful poem Radhika! I love these lines;

    My dirt laden feet, walking on the muddy trails would gather untold experiences,

    soaking in the spirit of nature, witnessing miracles unfold.

  2. “its allure, is not strong enough to lure me.” – this made me smile dear Radhika, for having your company in this perspective, and your entire poem kept my smile on, what you is describe far more alluring, and your poetry made it all the way more affirming and beautiful at the same time.
