MYSTERY

I
Of what exactly do we expect to hear in the world of silence?
What do we expect to see in the light of despair?
In a world of crippled minds,
What is expected to be found in the darkness of hope?
II
Leading the world of man into perilous haven,
When we premised our pleasure in the openess of shame
Who search for truth with unseen veil of deceit,
And our pain is skilled in the fogs of peace.
III
Is this fate or faith?
Fate of Man's ignorance?
Or is this the effect of the fall of the first man?
Faith of Man's misguidance?
When faith scolds the good people,
And fate applauds the evil ones.
IV
Should we say Eden is a cursed land?
Perhaps, Goshen would have been a better prospect!
Or the serpent lured them to wrong counsel?
Or the tree itself is the root of all evil!
V
Should we say it's a life of misguidance or a rife of ignorance?
Which ever, life continues!
As life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
