A Mysterious Voice

A mysterious voice called me from within
 I ran towards the dancing waves of the ocean,
 But I couldn't reach the water line,
I fell on the white sands of the shore.
My feet got wet with my own blood
 Streaming from the wounds
 Caused by broken seashells.

Then-
Leaving behind the ocean of my illusion-
I came back to the real world.
The world of struggle and victory
The world of hate and love
The world of sorrow and joy
The world of punishments and rewards
The world of agony and ecstasy.
