When I gazed at the sky,
Was devoid of celestial bliss to the eye,
Pitch dark, as dark as a black lie.
Obscured 'above the clouds' were,
Moon of my emulations and stars of materialism,
Rising upto infinite expanse and unlimited realm.
Ambitions coursed like blood through me,
Material desires unending like treadmill,
Unseable above murky dark clouds of philistinism.
Enthusiasm lost to adversities and fortune,
For lack of determination altered my traverse,
Time tricked me down like a running grave,
Rainbow that receeded as I advanced.
As the wind blew and the doors rattled,
Saturated clouds burst with the torrential rain,
Sweeping impatience and increased appetite
Cleared sky,of ambitions as hollow as soul of an echo.
Iniquity flees, and I find
my verves as new as the glistening silk of moon,
Determination as hard as a rock,
Metamorphosed into a millionaire's mistress.
And tireless I fly, conforming to all my aspirations,
Culminating at the crest, desires hurried like clouds,
And diligent I stand in complacency,
Where serenity is the denouement.
