Borderless Flight . . . (Poem)

On the eve of my journey from Bhubaneswar (Odisha, India) to Kuching (Sarawak, Malaysia)

Here is the gist in English:

This day . . .
I let you on your path,
May you ride your dreams.

This day . . .
I have braved to overcome,
My false sense of home.

This day . . .
I leave behind the familiar,
To seek the meaning of life.

This day . . .
I spread my wings,
For a borderless flight.

Tomorrow . . .
I shall discover my chance,
To live and grow without regrets.

Note. After a few days of writing this, I remembered the original trigger for this poem -- it happens to be a poem by Dr Bhavita Saxena, which I had read in Here & Now, 22(4) (Oct-Dec 2008), p. 7 (PDF version available here).

  2. Hi DP,

    Nice peom DP! I appreciate your inner urge to step out of the confines of a familiar landscape, to set out on a new path. What do you exactly mean in the sentence 'my false sense of rootedness'... What are you searching for I wonder... I hope you find it.
