Journey Called Life

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

travelling-with-hope

Life is a journey, keep going. Never stop, never give up, keep hope burning bright and travel on in life.

As I wind around the road,

Wondering where I am going,

Covering vast distances in my travel,

Only just not knowing,

Who I am,

What am I doing,

Or

What I am supposed to do,

Sure is still a mystery to me,

Surely even to you.

Am traveling with hope and happiness,

Am traveling with joy,

I am looking for a rainbow above,

In the cloudy sky.

And lo behold!

The colors appear,

In their glorious hue,

They are spread out in a rainbow,

Just for me and you.

Reach out there and touch it,

You can feel it in your heart,

The memories of the struggle,

The trials that have passed.


But the rainbow still reminds you,

That there is joy,

There is hope,

For all those who go and seek it,

With great courage and great hope.

"I am looking for a rainbow above, In the cloudy sky." This is my view of life, Vellur. Life is too short to spend time in the valley of despair.
