Beyond The Edge
A place of which I blissfully and ignorantly feel a part is right here,where everything that belongs to my land begins and ends.An unpredictable edge calls me near and I walk into the blue waters till I reach knee deep.I close my eyes and for a while my heart dives in a boundless world with a new joy that I find.
High tides strike hard in a second,I wake up and stop.I timidly look back at the far lands which fought with the sea,the brown rocks that stood undaunted and turned into grains of sand.And then I see the little light on the roof top of my home.It seems far now,really.Frightened and tempted I take a few steps back and run towards where I think I truly belong.
I wish I can go away one day and find those treasures unseen.I wish to cross my love and fears and make them my strength.I wish I can walk over those conflicts on shore that have the privilege of tearing my desires apart.I wish to have a strong ship,a perfect map and a willful heart.And then one day I shall sail and conquer.
What is life then,without a little adventure???
