Why don’t these roads take me home?

Why doesn’t the glass quench my thirst?

Why doesn’t the sky soar so high anymore?

Why doesn’t the water run so deep?

Why does the view look forlorn?

Why does the touch talk no more?

Why do pains hurt no more?

Why do rains seem so dry ?

Why should clouds take shape?

Why would the mountains stand tall?

Why wouldn’t tears fill up the sky?

Why shouldn’t they crumble and fall?

Why does it feel crowded walking alone?

Why do the walls stare emptily?

Why does the window show sorrow?

Why does the breeze miss the trees?

Why does the bright yellow seem so grey?

Why do the colors fade?

Why cant we design our fate?

Why don’t we walk through that gate?

Gyanban Thoughts - Sometimes in life there are so many questions that one looks for some clarity of thought to take or make a decision.However, in the process of finding clarity one lands up into many more questions.To make things more vulnerable, these questions manifest only in one point of time -not always.Therefore, it s tough to find out what to base your answers and or actions on ? Maybe you've just got to go with the flow...who knows...

  5. We get answers only if we ask, and ask often... :)

  6. I always end up loving the last lines you write :)

Say it only if you mean it -

Sands of time

The scorching sun follows me Hot dunes burn my feet I know you are waiting for me As I leave the last oasis. A grain of sand tears my skin T...
