Tranquil promises

P.C :- Eugi’s Causerie

On this unknown life’s train,

Nomad of a passenger that I am,

Wherever it takes, I gladly go,

What have I promised myself I ask,

Nomad of a passenger that I am,

Are there promises to be kept,

What have I promised myself I ask,

That is to be broken?

From cacophony of mind’s chaos,

It is the peaceful colours of sunset I wish,

Spreading joy everyday,

Vibrant and unassuming,

It is the peaceful colours of sunset I wish,

Amidst daily carefree babble,

Vibrant and unassuming,

Happiness they spread,

Tranquility may seem simple,

Simple but profound to achieve,

Amongst life’s noises,

It slithers away from fingers of our hand- unseen,

Simple but profound to achieve,

Those calm, unexciting every- days,

It slithers away from fingers of our hand- unseen,

On this unknown life’s train.
