The Flash

Everything seems to be meaningless 
The beauty you hold one day it fades away 
The house you build crumbles down anyway
Money and power men accumulate in hands 
Fingers have gaps and those have wings 
Both either slip   down or fly away 
I search and have been searching 
Since I developed inquisitive mind 
A thing or two comparatively of longer durability 
I went to a desert and asked the sand   
The sand smiled at me and said ‘’take my dunes ‘’ 
Then I went to an ocean vast and asked the tide 
The tide rose and looked at me and said ‘’take my foams’’ 
I was tired but yet not spiritless 
I climbed and climbed and reached to the cliff 
The cliff gave me heard look and said ‘’take away my ice chunk ‘’ 
This time I really broke 
And climbed down with a saddened heart 
Suddenly I saw something inside 
And it was a flash 
Glowed and shined bright 
And told me in whisper it is in your mind what you search
In joy I hurried back and sat down to write this poetry.
