Bridges of words

by Uttam Gill (writer), BOMBAY(MUMBAI), September 12, 2012

It's about encounter with your twin soul which raises you with hope

From the ruins, I picked up broken times
The shrapnel of hurt made words to bleed
Truth in its trajectory took a course to reach
Somewhere someone scanned the bleeding words
Oblivious of this fact and I kept scripting my woes
From my scriptures the parallels were drawn
In my retributive mode I begged for attention
I yelled in my passages and got drowned in applauses

Over the rejected oaths and broken pledges, I built bridges
I was too busy to note that someone crossed the bridge
I felt someone shuffled besides me
someone unknown yet so familiar walked in
The divine light seeped in to immerse me
The one who was unknown is now familiar
I see the magical moment of my existence
In the light of my world I see sparkling hope
Who is that, who crossed the bridge?
Who is the one that may be?
But surely the one, who made me smile.
From the bridges of words my twin soul walked in
In our twilight zone of dreams we see the resurgence of hope
Entwined, we pray with hope
-Uttam Gill

Perseverance and hope! Some days do seem rougher for certain, but the lessons, strengths, abilities we can cultivate because of them are invaluable. Even the loneliness felt by so many... teaches empathy and the outreach of friendship to others in as much need as one finds the self on occassion! Beautiful poem Uttam.

Maybe they never left?.....Maybe you might have been a busy to notice they were still around. Either way, I'm glad the one that made you smile is back home in you. ;)
