This Stillness Can't Go On For Long-A Poem

When I walked on the road this morning
There was a reign of dullness around
The sky was encircled with darker clouds
Running around like tiny kids here and there!

This unusual quietness is just bewildering!
Where those brightness of the morning gone?
How one could ever undermine the mighty sun?
Is the sky sad or just pondering for a while?

I looked around, to find the quietness of the city
Few people walked, reflecting the unusual stillness
What happened to this busy world, I wondered
Is the world taking a rest for a while, I murmured!

Often mind seeks peacefulness for a while
Yet the whole world can't endure dullness forever
The wandering mind might get tired in search of love
Yet it can't take rest and live in a maze forever!

While my mind feel this deadly stillness around!
My heart whispers it can't go on for long!
There is going to be a brighter sunshine again for sure!
And we all will hear the chirrup of birds soon!
