A Quest for Nothing

A Quest for Nothing

The wait continues-
Endless, Meaningless
An escape, momentous…
Reality, does not trust
Anymore. Faith has
Ceased to exist.
The search continues-
Pointless; Regardless 
Of its own Futility.
Hope exists, though
Faint, Imperceptible-
At the edge of reason.
Dabbling in self-pity!
Nevertheless doing
Nothing to make a change.
Days pass, sordid 
Like sand that
Slips through the fingers.
Chasing new Dreams,
Budding new hopes
Across the Shadow of the Past.
Trudging to the End
Directionless; Lost in 
The Wilderness of Life.

The place you never reach.
Isn’t  the wait
That Life’s all about?

    We all are assailed by these doubts sometime or the other. You have brought it out simply and beautifully. On the facebook, I have a page called Lyrical. May I request you to join it? You can access it from my blog
