In Search of Paradise



Clammed in the sea of humanity
i'm not finding it easy to swim,
Around me are the menacing waves
pulling and pushing with every whim.

I yearn to live free in the place
which people dream and call paradise,
I decide to start my search
before it is late to even reminisce.

I break free and wander around
walking on the sands of forlorn beaches,
With the sun going down accompanied
with the joy, music of waves teaches.

I lie on the grassy meadows
looking into the starry lit sky
With a cool breeze blowing
whispering with trees as it passes by.

I walk down steep slopes
covered with flowers of different hues,
Drinking from the little brooks
and swimming in the bustling foam.

I tread when my mind desires
eat when the opportunity provides
The journey is bit long
but the heart never tires.

With each rising day the journey continues,
and with each passing step joy renews
I don't know still where is my paradise
But if the journey is such, Even paradise can wait.

Last line is excellent.

Liked the 5 and 7th stanzas.

You are going good. Expectations are now high!

Great……such lines can’t be just out of your imagination. You must have lived them!
You have great sense of rhyming and at the same time not bogged down by them. You are gifted with simplicity and clarity which is essential for a poet. Never stop writing...it is a pleasure to read.
