Sitting on the shore,
With the musing sounds,
Of water molecules ,
Chanting an age old chorus,
To this age of the dynamics,
From the ages of rhinoceros,
I look beyond the sea,
At the zenith of the sky,
What must be there?
What does there lie.
O man! just look at the shore,
The rising tides are asking,
Can you also rise so high?
If you have the will,
Could go beyond the sky.
The dip in ways are telling me,
Can you go so deep in love?
Could you fall in love of thee?
A fruit of love you could reap,
Water is hitting the shore,
With power full thrust,
O the dwellers of land,
Overcome your lust,
Become kind n just,
You are the sand,
Driven out with waves,
Next wave will take you back,
You are just slaves..
The waves are waving for the heavens,
They will never die,
You are exiled of heavens,
Day n night you will mourn,
Day n nights, have a cry………………….
