I Kept Walking

They said it can never grow

The little sapling among the mighty trees

In the shadowy stifling corner

Yet it gathered bit by bit

Sponging itself in own sweat

Pushing the trees raised it head to blue sky

And I kept walking –

They said it should be killed

The rainbow bird that wanted to sing life

Couple of shots, a few knife jabs to make sure

Does a dead body has some hope left in it

The dead heart pulsates again

Eyes opened to dreams it soared high

And I kept walking –

They said it’s not possible

To reach the infinite reaches of riches

The light might reach by eternity – they laughed

“They” never had the know how

Powered by dream on the path of thought

Might reach with enough time left to savor

And I kept walking –

Winds of Amazonia came calling

They said rain has a permanent home there

I saw my dream on the cloud-clad hilltop

The moonlit bubbles glistening in raindrops

And I am walking –
