Theme: Introspection

Yin and Yang

I went to reach out to the Sun
I went out to become its light
The show ended before start of the fun
Giving up before even start of the fight

Dreamt to become the flow of a river
Gathering no moss on its course
No more of the old Stagnant Pond
Stepping out of the pattern per force

Little did I realize that the weight
Of extraordinary life is too heavy on shoulders
With no glaciers to start with
The flow stops even before it encounters the boulders

Why did I return, what made me go ?
Probably the Yin and Yang of the Flow
Whatever I may call this whichever name may I assign
Things good for others need not be mine

I went out to reach the Sun
I went out to become its light
Am I not where I need to be ?
Is there any need for the fight ?
