MY BIRTHDAY

I am traveling
I know I have traveled
I am traveling
To an unknown destination
But I know this step today
Takes me nearer

II
I have seen hurdles
I have seen pain
I have seen lions
Like a hunter,  I have battled their wounds on my skin
I have housed scars which never fail in their duty of reminding
I have known puzzles
And its defeats
I can’t say I have conquered
But I have won many of my matches
I have travelled
And I am still traveling

III
There is no pain
I am yet to see
There is no pain
Whose surprise gun I will fear
For my stones are many
My shoes, swift in speed
Through the smoke
With these teary eyes
I envisage a clear sky
With hailing sun and clapping clouds
So I have travelled
I travel
I am traveling
Through this earth to an aftermath beyond
I just hope I light smiles on mouths with every step
