Beyond The Edge

Waves come afloat and kiss my feet.Pebbles of white hug them from beneath.I stand here looking at the lone gull dare and plunge into the sky and wonder did I walk enough to reach here and will I some more,right now without really knowing why.

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???
