Migratory Birds
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
 

The disturbing environment
of changing seasons
disturbed environment
ignites the survival instinct
and the birds that are daring
with a zeal for "living" life
soar high with their flock
on a journey to distant lands
where they weave new nests
and return renouncing everything
back to their "home"
when the right moment comes.

I with millions many more
wander all across the continents
due to unrest caused by political games
or the aspiration within that challenged
to discover and fulfill the potential
by building a new "chosen" life.

Yet, in the newfound peace
and changed circumstances
the discontented sense of fulfillment
keeps searching for the Oasis .......

I find myself unable to relinquish and return.

The eagle with its infinite span of wings
is unable to fly again
The trauma of leaving the homeland
continues to haunt ...
