Beyond the horizon

Sharing with you today, the poem of mine which was published on The Oak Wheel.

Beyond the horizon!


Far across the meadows,
Crossing over fences and brooks
I tread over rock and sand
And desire to cross my threshold.

Looking at those meek birds 
Fly high soaring in the sky
I see them rising steadily
Uncaged and breathing in freedom.

The step I plan to take now
Will change the course of my life.
If I stay within the boundaries,
I’ll stay confined, all my life.

I crossed it, aware of the consequences,
Unaware about where it will lead,
I need to see further, widen the scope of my vision,
Reach for the sky and stars, lying beyond the horizon.

  5. Undoubtedly reminds me of ‘The road less travelled’ by Frost. But the theme of obviously different. Here, it’s about taking that first step! Loved the courageous ending 🙂
