So now that you’ve started walking this path
Let me give you a little snip of it.
A few do’s and don’ts
And instructions little bit.
But before I go any further,
I have one question to ask.
Did they give you a map before you left?
If yes, then do me one favour dear
Please tear it apart.
Shred it down to pieces,
Don’t have a look at it.
Yes It has the dangers marked in red
It has its benefits, I admit
It has the destination where you need to be
And the places safe to stay
But why don’t you be thy guide
And find your own way?
Cross the streams, they frowned upon.
Stay there for a while.
What if the flow is not strong enough?
What if their worries are all futile?
What if all their doubts are a travesty?
What if the Forests aren’t as dark and gloomy as they seem?
What if all the Gold is hidden where
Even the Sun can not see?
What if the road not taken
Is the most beautiful one?
What if there are lands
That would leave you stunned?
And Even if I am wrong
And all what they say is true
Wouldn’t you like to have a story to tell?
And tales to tattle about you?
Wouldn’t you like to be the Traveller?
Or a remorseful life would do?
Cause If that is case darling
Then go on and follow the map
Just like the passers-by do!
