       This was written while the Tsunami had hit the coasts, and I dedicate this to all the departed souls and their family..I placed myself in the shoes of a victim and jotted this..have also tried to bring in a lesson-to-learn..hope this touches you and at the same time makes each one of think about our loving family...

    Why do I feel the world so dark
    The sky so cloudy and sea so stormy
    Why do I sit to think of life
    As one big journey, laden with thorns..
    I walk through these roads now just with scuff
    Bidding my scuffle a fair goodbye.
    Ere I leave, let memories come
    Touch my eyes and to soul let hum;
    Let loose those moments, sweet & sour
    Unraveling details from my memoir.

    On this road I stand to look forward
    And see pitch darkness awaiting me.
    Once I had stood on the same pathway
    Staring the narrowing road before me-
    Stretched endless & wondering then -
    "How long is this journey, and
    When does it end?"
    Treading the path was fun to me
    With fulfilling dreams; like trees beside
    And joyful mind, like of singing birds.

    Time rolled by and showed me days
    When spirit rose up and did fall too
    But nothing seemed to stop me then
    Even when things went wrong in life
    What gave strength in adversities
    Were the love I earned from kith n kin
    Which bonded us like flesh and skin.
    Nothing could shake me, I thought with pride
    And went on to rule the path of my life
    With head rising high, and levitating feet.

    Then one fine day, did I set out
    To join back with gifts in gay
    Who then knew that was the day
    The Craftsman had kept for my feet to touch ground
    Rose from the sea, waves violent & rash
    Splashing on land, and lives on earth
    He strigiled away the pride of my life,
    Throttling them with the hands of sea
    The birds stopped singing, that perched the trees-
    That had stood as a shelter beside my path.

    From then till now, I have not seen
    A singing bird, nor a fulfilling tree
    That borders my path and gives me joy.
    I treaded the path of life before me
    Scuffing and scuffling up till now
    Pride had slid earth beneath my feet
    And taught me the lesson, I have now learned.
    My pathway had to seek its end;
    And then came the moment to reunite
    With the joy of my life, once stolen off..
