To the dark I went-

The darker it grew

To the light I went-

The dimmer it grew

I called for the stars

But they were too far

I called for the sky

But it’s up above the high

 

To the friends I went-

They moved away

To the relatives I went-

They barred my way

I called for help

My voice did gulp

I called for the idol

But it had no bridle

 

To my lover I went-

The outsider he felt

To my darling I went-

The weirder he dealt

I called for the past

Where I was his last

I called for the powers

To tackle those hours

 

To the flowers I went-

The musk-less were they

To the grass I went-

It was drier as hay

I called for the winds

But it warned the rinds

I called for the rain

But it was all in vain

 

To the home I went-

Contracted it became

To the rooms I went-

And encountered the same

I called for the doors

They sent down my roars

I called for the shelters

But I found mere fetters

 

To the fame I went-

The infamous I grew

To the renown I went-

And felt among ‘a few’

I called for the fans

While being in a trance

I called for applauses

It conjured up the show-biz

 

To the scholars I went-

The prouder they were

To the sages I went-

They did hideously slur

I called for control

Being swayed in a ball

I called for advice

But I found no wise

 

To my diary I went-

It opened its arms

To the pen I went-

And scribbled those harms

I called for my Muse

It gave me -the love profuse

I called for him

And the melody reached- its brim

 

AND THEN!

 

To the light I went-

The lighter it grew

To the sun I went-

The brighter it grew

I called for my soul

It picked up my call

I called for my heart

It rejuvenated the start

 

To my heart I went-

The soother it was

To my soul I went-

And broke the pause

I called for nothing

As I had found- everything

I called for none

Because my heart I had won!

 

Every place I went- through the thick and thin

But I never gave up- I never gave in…!
