The Chase !

The burning sun, the nearly still air,
People on the asphalt road commuting,
n there amdist them, hastily walked a man in black,
with sweat all over his face, dripping..

With a heart beating like a horse galloping ,
gripped by the fear of the unknown ,
Cluelessly walking, locating the unseen,
intermittently kicking the odd roadside stone..

A hand waved at some distance,
Erupting a rage of unwanted emotions somewhere..
The unseen had been located,
to hell with everythin else, he just didnt care..

what followed was hours of bewilderness..
no ideas , only cluelessness..
He talked senseless shit,
the fear still churning his stomach pit..

time rolled by.. and once again,
He was there standing alone,
in the middle of a world working just fine,
yeah, he didnt want to go back home..

why remains the question still unanswered,
even he didnt know..
Stood there with frozen steps, forget the sun,
guzzling out smoke, deciding where to go..

He moved on, yes he did..
n got lost in the crowd...
a million thoughts flooding his mind,
n he knew why before u sow seeds, the field must be ploughed!

but no point realising anything now,
it was all over, the moment was gone,
All he was left with were some incredible memories,
And an unknown bliss,as he pondered till dawn..

This is life , as we know it,
Forget the ever troubling lows,
Find a reason to live, 
in small celebrations that it bestows..

We were born human,
we were born to Chase endlessly,
So chase, and u shall find peace,
Just like the boy i mentioned,who is now back home resting comfortably...
