Looking into the ball of future,

I saw a glimpse of hope flickering far in the sky.

Inside my feeble mind, a thought arose,

“If Only I can be near the flickering

To have a perspective of life on Earth”?

 

Oops! Here I am, moving around the sky,

Part of the clouds

Blinking often, I ensured I am not blind:

The flickering is bigger and more widespread,

I looked down to see my earth.

 

Darkness loomed around - in all nooks and corners

Learners, who believed in completeness of learning

Teachers, who forgot the meaning of education

People with self-centricity,

Unscrupulous institutions, sprouting all around...

 

The signs of wisdom - nowhere to be seen,

The flickering of hope turned into darkness of ignorance,

Realism was given a royal burial by the followers of believers

Illusion hovered around in majestic style – echoing all around.

 

I saw my people, groping in darkness

Living in a world full of paradoxes,

Believing firmly on the illusions as real.

But, looking for the elusive truthfulness. 

 

Back in the world of mine,

I shared my vision with all around,

I saw suspicious eyes,

Friends becoming foes,

Kith and kin avoiding me - like a plague.

 

With utter disgust, I went back to my own inner-soul

To be all alone – to live in the real world of hope

A world devoid of illusionary perspectives

To move away from the “Realistic” unrealistic world

 

Will I be able to bring a paradigm shift?....
